My title for a first section sucks horribly. But please rename it. I had to try something to shrink down or give a first paragraph. (wiki style stuff) Lsjzl 15:38, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Mine is only slightly better. If I think of something else, I'll addJoseane 20:08, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

I have deleted the line that required a citation as I felt it didn't really add anything to the text. Anyone upset? 4us 20:37, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

I restored the paragraph on ontology. This is essential for any possible understanding of Goodman's irrealism. He is not talking about a single reality that looks different. He follows Kant in that there is no raw reality. All actual realities, whether one or many, are constructed using symbol systems. BlueMist (talk) 15:19, 22 May 2012 (UTC)


SHOULDNT THIS PAGE BE MERGED WITH ANTI-REALISM? —Preceding unsigned comment added by FrozenMan (talkcontribs) 20:59, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Not really - I think Goodman was trying to take a middle position... not unlike Putnam and Bunge... Realism sometimes... Anti-realism sometimes... I'd have to look for a source but I think it's fairly clear by from his account of Realism in Languages of Art.Joseane (talk) 20:57, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
