I shall discuss here the topics of existence and nonexistence, of what it is for an individual to be actual and what it is for an individual not to be actual. What I shall have to say about these matters offers little toward our primordial need to discover the Meaning of Existence, but I hope to say some things that will satisfy the more modest ambition of those of us who wish to know the meaning of 'existence'. I shall also say some things that bear on issues in the grandest tradi- tions of Philosophy.
