Abstract

In this paper I begin by stating the No-Colocation Law (NCL). I then outline the main counterexamples to the NCL and how they gives rise to the Grounding Problem. I sketch some prominent ways of defending the NCL, showing why they fail, or why they are inadequate on independent grounds. Finally, I set out Spatial Fictionalism and how it solves the problem.
