Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Search  
 
Possibilia, philosophy: possibilia are accepted, possible objects that do not exist (in our world) actually. It is controversial whether one should discuss them at all, since their properties are not so clearly defined that they can always be distinguished from one another, for example, to count them. See also possibilism, actualism, modal realism.
