Conceptions of Reality – Schlick, Carnap, Neurath

I examine a simple, intuitively powerful idea regarding the ontology of the world – an idea that seems now out of fashion. It’s the idea that to say of an object or event that it is real is to say that it can be localized uniquely in the space-time frame. One thinker who has made a strong case for this idea is Moritz Schlick. One who has opposed it is Quine.
