Unmasking and Dispositionalism: Reply to Mark Johnston


Authors

Abstract
Mark Johnston acknowledges the potential significance of investigating the nature and prospects of metaphysical ambition as I try to do with respect to the colors of things in The Quest for Reality. But he is not impressed with the actual achievement. He thinks I spend too much time rejecting views that nobody nowadays, or perhaps ever, would take seriously, and too little time—and in some cases no time at all—opposing views contrary to mine that almost everybody who is anybody nowadays accepts. He raises some objections that I certainly have not answered or even explicitly forestalled in the book. The most I can do here is to indicate the directions in which I think adequate replies might be found, if they can be found at all.
