Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is a great book. In it Mark Sainsbury provides a lucid and interesting discussion of the nature of fiction, the status of fictional objects, and fictionalism in general, offering an excellent overview of these subjects and giving a barrage of interesting arguments for his own views along the way. The book is also timely. There has been a recent surge of interest in all three of these issues and I know of no other book that comes close to providing such a good introduction to, and discussion of, these topics.' - Analysis

'…an impressive book. In a clear, concise and engaging style, Sainsbury manages to explain fairly difficult issues in an accessible way. Throughout the arguments are of high quality. Sainsbury manages both to provide good overviews of the relevant literature, and to present interesting arguments on pretty much every page. The book will be useful for students both at the advanced undergraduate level and at the graduate level, and for researchers in metaphysics and philosophy of language.' - Matti Eklund, Cornell University

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J.Feen- on June 11, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sainsbury's response to, review of, and treatment of the various types of fictionalisms is seriously outstanding. For starters, Sainsbury's syntactic style is Oxford-Contemporary; that is, while his grammar is impeccable where it must be and most appropriate where it OUGHT to be (e.g., use of the "Oxford Comma"), his sentence structure and word choice is not outdated and overly-formal, thus making the text--and hence the overall dialectic--tremendously fluid and unimpeded. Secondly, Sainsbury's incorporation of cutting-edge thinkers and thought on the topic is both impeccable and vast. Most importantly, Sainsbury's merit for the overall product must be applauded simply by virtue of this text being the first of its kind; that is, not even reading all the literature on this rapidly developing topic would compare to the masterpiece that is this indispensable companion to this relatively recent development in metaphysics (and metaethics). Again, simply outstanding.
