The Monist 83 (1):89-100 (2000)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In his book Realism, dedicated to the “The Glorious Memory of Alexius Meinong” and devoted to complexity, Gustav Bergmann claims that in Meinong’s ontology there are no complexes. Bergmann judges Meinong’s solution of the ontological problem of complexity, a problem he considers pivotal, to have failed. How can he, nevertheless, praise Meinong, which he does not only in the dedication? This is because Bergmann thinks that Meinong comes very close to the right ontological analysis of complexes which was a rare achievement in his time.
