Some Further Remarks on Hybrid View of Fictional Characters

Miloš Kosterec


In this short paper, I focus on several properties of the so-called Hybrid View of Fictional Characters. First, I present the theory to be discussed. Subsequently, I present several remarks on the consequences of the theory, mainly the problem of identifying fictional characters and the problem of modal properties of sentences containing fictional names.


De dicto, de re, fictional character, fictional name, requisite.
