This chapter argues that neither the modal realism of David Lewis nor abstract possible worlds reductionism can satisfy Truthmaker or TSB when it comes to truths of de re modality. On the contrary, both Truthmaker and TSB lead straight to irreducible modal properties. Thus, Truthmaker and TSB have significant implications for the nature of modality and the inventory of irreducible properties.
