Title: “Superspreading the Word”.
Abstract: Quasi-realists are expressivists who say much of what realists say. To avoid making their view indistinguishable from realism, however, they usually stop short of saying everything realists say. Many realists therefore think that something important is missing from quasi-realism. I will argue that quasi-realists can undermine this thought by defending a version of quasi-realism that I will call super-quasi-realism. This version seems indistinguishable from realism, but I will argue that this is a mistaken impression that arises because we cannot believe super-quasi-realism.
