Abstract

An attempt is made at understanding the complex meaning of Russell’s “robust sense of reality”. It is argued that it is only in part connected with concerns of ontological parsimony, and that it has many aspects; among them, a major role is played by Russell’s general attitude towards the notion of being, which is to be conceived as belonging to everything.
