Possibilia Evans/McDowell (Ed) Truth and Meaning Oxford 1977
EMD II 251
Possibilia / Woods: do never exist - their existential predication is always wrong. - Problem: if we accept that the existence-quantifier has no connection to the existence, existence then results only from the signification of constants, not from the quantifier. - It is also no law any more that (x) (x exists) > (Ey) (y = x). - Solution: additional axiom that everything exists at any one time.
