Although idealism was widely defended in some version or other throughout the history of philosophy, these days it has all but disappeared from serious philosophical consideration. Nonetheless, there is good reason to think that idealism is true after all. In this talk I will discuss the idealist's vision and present an argument for a particularly strong form of idealism. This argument will come from a somewhat unexpected source: considerations about our own language. Prima facie no argument from considerations about our own language could support a metaphysical view like idealism. However, I hope to make clear why in this case such an argument is possible. The resulting idealism holds that in one way reality is independent of us, but in another way reality depends on us, in a sense of dependence to be spelled out.
