Abstract: One of the key issues in the metaphysics of quantities is the dispute between comparativists and absolutists. What is the debate about and who has the upper hand? I argue that neither absolutism nor comparativism as they have been presented in the debate are attractive positions in the metaphysics of quantities and offer a form of sophisticated substantivalism as an alternative.
