On 'There Is'

by Noel Fleming, Nicholas Wolterstorff
Philosophical Studies: An International Journal for Philosophy in the Analytic Tradition ()


The authors attempt to show that 'there is' and 'exists' are not univocal terms, And that 'there is' does not always mean the same as 'exists'. They give examples of three different uses of 'there is': (1) one in which it is synonymous with 'exists', (2) one in which it is not the same as 'exists,' (3) one which is ambiguous. Evidence that they are not the same can be found, According to the authors, In the fact that it is true that there are things that don't exist, Such as unicorns. (staff)
