Abstract
This is a slightly opinionated review of three main factions in metaontology: Quineans, Carnapians, and Meinongians. Emphasis is given to the last camp, as the metaontological aspect of Meinongianism has been underappreciated. The final section then offers some general remarks about the legitimacy of ontology, touching on ideas I have developed in other publications.
Keywords Quine, Willard Van Orman  Carnap, Rudolf  Meinong, Alexius  Pragmatism in Metaontology  Metametaphysics  Criteria of Ontological Commitment  Regimentation  Internal and External Questions  Quantification  Descriptions and Descriptivism
