Lewis's modal realism[edit]

"The modal realism of David Lewis" is, to be precise, a misnomer. Lewis was indeed a realist about possible worlds and claimed that modal talk could be reduced to talk about actual situations in other existing possible worlds. But that, of course, makes him a modal anti-realist, not a modal realist. — Unsigned, by: G.D. / talk / contribs

What? Lewis's modal realism is one of his best-known positions, and he self-identified as an "extreme" modal realist. I think you're using the terms in an unusual way.TallMan (talk) 02:10, 10 October 2011 (UTC)


This theory would probably get more support if it didn't sound like a Marvel comic. SophieWilderModerator 12:56, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

I only found it by searching the whole wiki for "Tegmark". Article could do with a better title - David Gerard (talk) 16:05, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
