Much Ado about Nothing: Critical Realism Examined

Abstract

Critical realism is the view that fictional characters are contingent, actual, abstract individuals, ontologically on a par with such things as plots and rhyme schemes, and quantified over in statements such as "A character in Hamlet is a prince." A strong contender for the correct account of fictional characters, critical realism nevertheless has difficulty satisfying all that we intuitively require of such an account.
