In this paper, an argument of Alvin Plantingas for the existence of abstract possible worlds is shown to be unsound. The argument is based on a principle Plantinga calls Quasicompactness, due to its structural similarity to the notion of compactness in first-order logic. The principle is shown to be false. 1989 by the University of Notre Dame. All rights reserved.
