Concise yet comprehensive, Francesco Berto's study of Meinongian logic, semantics, and the object theory interpretation of existence, admirably covers the recent history and breaks new ground in its subject. Readable and well-researched, Berto's book provides an elegant field guide to basic concepts in Meinong scholarship, partnered with a phenomenologically motivated commitment to a referential domain of beingless alongside existent dynamic and abstract intended objects.

Dale Jacquette, Universität Bern

Institut für Philosophie

Berto’s book is a passionate defence of the old-fashioned yet for a long while discredited idea that existence is a first-order property that some individual possess while some others – past and future objects, intentional objects, fictional objects … - lack. Berto refreshens this idea by providing new intriguing arguments against its detractors and by developing what he calls Modal Meinongianism, a theory originally presented by Graham Priest. Noone interested in logico-semantical and ontological issues should refrain from carefully reading this book.
