This chapter explores the role of actuality in modal judgments. It argues that Kripke's first great contribution to conceivability studies was to have seen the need for a technology of modal error detection in the first place. His second great contribution was to have made a start at developing this technology. There is no need to foist on him a third ‘contribution’ of identifying the one and only way modal illusions can arise.

Keywords:   actuality, modal judgement, Kripke, conceivability studies
