    Ross and Spurrett appear convinced that the world must have a unified ontological structure. This conviction is difficult to reconcile with a commitment to mainstream realism, which involves allowing that the world might be ontologically disunified. Ross and Spurrett should follow Kitcher by weakening their conception of unification, so as to allow for the possibility of ontological disunity.
