The Contradictions are True—And It's Not Out of This World! A Response to Takashi Yagisawa

From: Philosophy East and West
Volume 63, Number 3, July 2013
pp. 370-372 | 10.1353/pew.2013.0037

In reply, while we are happy to endorse impossible worlds containing contradictions, we argue that contradictions concerning emptiness hold, and are meant to hold, at the actual world.
