The paper identifies basic requirements that should be answered by an object ontology. It sheds light on the two major approaches to objects – reductive and non-reductive – in order to expose their difficulties in satisfying those requirements. The aim of the paper is to uncover realistic and antirealistic tendencies in both approaches.
