Abstract
In this paper, I examine Takashi Yagisawa's response to van Inwagen's ontic objection against David Lewis. Van Inwagen criticizes Lewis's commitment to the absolutely unrestricted sense of 'there is,' and Yagisawa claims that by adopting modal tenses he avoids commitment to absolutely unrestricted quantification. I argue that Yagisawa faces a problem parallel to the one Lewis faces. Although Yagisawa officially rejects the absolutely unrestricted sense of a quantifying expression, he is still committed to the absolutely unrestricted sense of 'is a real.' © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
