This chapter provides a brief survey of varieties of irrealism and neutralizes that brand of irrealism that would undermine the semantic realist's account of meaning. It argues that through transcendental arguments for the incoherence of irrealism about semantic discourse can be defused, the global anti-realist need not advocate an irrealist view of semantic discourse. It explains that for the semantic anti-realist, meaning is determinate and facts about meaning provide the ultimate justification for one's choice of logic.

Keywords:   irrealism, meaning, semantic discourse, anti-realist, logic
