Brilliant article!! I share your good natured disquiet about the Fundamental Problem and think for good reason it may be something we'll never resolve. Grounding theories in metaontology still face a problem of demonstrating an ultimate ground.

Sometimes it seems we've been working on the same basic problems since the pre-socratics, but haven't really solved the fundamentals. IMHO our greatest advances have been our creation of logical apparatus, but who can prove reality is bound by any modal logic? Hermann was right to resign and disappear; his Kantian approach would be just as infirm as rival theories and for the same reason.
