dc.description.abstractYears ago, when I was young and reckless, I believed that there was such a thing as an allinclusive domain.1 Now I have come to see the error of my ways. The source of my mistake was a view that might be labeled ‘Tractarianism’. Tractarians believe that language is subject to a metaphysical constraint. In order for an atomic sentence to be true, there needs to be a certain kind of correspondence between the semantic structure of the sentence and the ‘metaphysical structure’ of reality. The purpose of this paper is to explain why I think Tractarianism is mistaken, and what I think an anti-Tractarian should say about absolutely general quantification.en_US
