Could anyone please recommend a book to begin to learn about Meinong's theory of objects and "Meinong's Jungle". I thought a good one might be "Meinong's Theory of Objects and Values" by Findlay (1963), but I can't find even a used copy anywhere that isn't prohibitively expensive.
I have Findlay's book but do not recommend it. It is an early work, not one of mature exposition, and hardly luminous in its clarity. Its scholarship is also now unavoidably dated.
