This is a reminder for:

Title: Sam Baron
The Indispensability of Modals


Indispensability arguments seek to establish the truth of some body of  
claims based on the involvement of those claims in science. Standard  
indispensability arguments are aimed at establishing the truth of  
mathematical claims. I mount an indispensability argument for the truth of  
modal claims. The argument focuses on explanatory power: we should believe  
modal claims because they play an indispensable explanatory role in  
science. The indispensability argument for modals is targeted at modal  
fictionalists and modal agnostics. The former explicitly deny the truth of  
modal claims, while the latter maintain that we cannot know whether modal  
claims are true or not.
