Resumo

This paper is focused on dismissive metaontological views about ontology. The paper’s first section deals with radical dismissivism: a view which I interpret as Carnap’s (1956). The second section approaches moderate dismissivism: a view which I interpret as Hirsch’s (2011). My first claim is stated in section three: that there are significant differences between the mentioned authors. However, current literature on metaontology, not only does not emphasize such differences, but also insinuates that they do not exist. The authors I have in mind here are Eklund (2007, 2009) and Bennett (2009). In the fourth section, I compare Carnap’s radical dismissivism with Hirsch’s moderate dismissivism. My second claim is stated in section five: that Carnap’s radical dismissivism is more persuasive than Hirsch’s moderate one.
