Since speakers refer to and quantify over virtual objects as naturally as they do over actual objects, natural ontology is basically intensional, requiring acceptance of virtual realities. Each language has socially shared cognitive reality. Current Russellian‐Quinean extensional ontology is criticized in favour of a more Meinongian approach, based on the Kantian epistemological dilemma.

Keywords:   critique of Russell and Quine, Meinongian objects, the Kantian epistemological argument, the mind as creator of virtual reality, the social reality of language
