Do folk objects exist? A selective eliminativism says that some do and some don’t. One eye-catching version of this says that tennis players exist, although tennis balls and tennis rackets do not. In our paper, we focus critical attention upon a defense of such a view presented by Trenton Merricks in his book, Objects and Persons. We will show that the argument advanced by Merricks shows either too much or too little.
