Chimeras and Realia: Bolzano and/or Meinong on Representations without an Object

Subject(s): Philosophy

Keywords: Bolzano; Meinong; chimeras; non-existing entities

Summary/Abstract: We understand chimeras, but how can that be, since chimeras do not exist? I reconstruct the history of the problem of non-existing entities and the contributions of Bolzano and Meinong to the semantics of chimeras. I argue that there are causal relations between things which do not exist, existing things and our representations of them and their properties in the world in which we live.
