But it is an issue that arises for anyone who thinks there is conceptually based knowledge, say in logic, mathematics or elsewhere. It is not a problem unique to those who take this meta-ontological approach. 17 I ntroduction use of familiar and pedestrian conceptual and empirical work to answer existence questions. And the relation between the natural sciences and philosophy is kept clear as well: the sciences investigate empirical questions, while philosophers are distinctively concerned with conceptual issues (though obviously their work may intersect and interact in a variety of ways, and working scientists may also have to revise and choose among conceptual frameworks).

Hirsch doesn’t exactly endorse the idea that Carnap was antirealist or verificationist, only that his formulation ‘sometimes seems to suggest an antirealist or verificationist perspective’ (2009, 231). Nonetheless, he also does not reject this interpretation of Carnap. 35 D eveloping E asy O ntology One very good way of understanding the internal/external distinction is in terms of the use-mention distinction. Huw Price suggests this idea as follows: In my view, it is helpful to frame Carnap’s point in terms of the use-mention distinction.

Moreover, as Huw Price has pointed out (2009), Quine’s argument here does nothing to revive the idea that there are general existence questions that can be construed as meaningful questions not answerable by trivial (or straightforward empirical) means: external questions. Instead it shows how anything we might have considered to be an external question can instead be turned into an internal question—but internal questions are, on Carnap’s view, easily answered. So (as Price 2009 again points out) it is quite bizarre to think of Quine, in this paper, as serving as the champion of hard metaphysics, making way for a new discipline of ‘hard’ ontology.
