I am a PhD Student in Philosophy at the University of Manchester. My project is to undermine the Quinean dictum for metaontology that everything exists. I do this by defending noneism, which is a form of Meinongainsim. Noneism is the position that some objects do not exist. I defend this view in the context of philosophy of fiction by arguing against fictionalism and fictional realism. My research incorporates research into linguistics, reference, pragmatics, metaphysics and philosophy of fiction, and modal logic.
