The Need for Ontology: Some Choices: C. B. Martin

Philosophy 68 (266):505-522 (1993)
Abstract
The aim of this paper is to set out some of the ontologies amongst which some forms of anti-realism must select. This provides the appropriate setting for presenting an alternative realist ontology. The argument is that the choice between the varieties of anti-realism and realism is inevitably a choice between ontologies.
