Yes, if there was a text of this it would be nice... I found this:
A fictionalist account holds that some things are fictional, i.e. don't exist even

flying pink elephant is pink, must you believe a flying pink elephant exists?
Flying pink elephants are pink and not pink. That's why flying pink elephant
A pink elephant is pink by construction.
Exact. But the flying pink elephant are also not pink. By logic.
A flying pink elephant that is not pink would be a contradiction in terms.
Or show me a flying pink elephant living on this planet which isn't not pink.
That's not logic, that empiricism.
