This article discusses Epstein’s variety of individualism in the light of the contemporary analytical debate on social ontology, highlighting the interesting – yet not fully worked out – outcomes of Epstein’s theory for the (social) rethinking of metaphysical categories. On the one hand, Epstein strategy could be very fruitful as for the criticism of intentionalist and normative approaches to social ontology. On the other hand, the distinction between "grounding" and "anchoring" proposed by Epstein is not fully worked out, and can at best be interpreted as a pragmatic tool rather than a firmly based conceptual distinction.
