This chapter argues first that Horwich has failed to make the case that he isn't actually taking sides in the very debate that he rejects as meaningful. In particular, it takes Horwich to be committed to a form of non-reductive realism about all the ‘weird’ sorts of facts mentioned above. Second, the chapter claims that Horwich's arguments for his non-reductive realism are not compelling. Horwich moves too quickly from a point about language and concepts to a point about the world and the facts it contains.
