Possible Worlds - eBook

Logic, Semantics and Ontology

ISBN: 978-3-88405-712-4

Price: €68.00 (including 7 % tax)


Possible worlds have enjoyed a remarkable philosophical career.  From the Scholastic era in medieval times through their later informal thematization, especially in Leibniz, and more contemporary model set theoretical formalization, and all the lively philosophical controversy that surrounds them today, the concept of a logically possible world has played a significant role in metaphysics and ontology, mathematical logic, formal and intuitive semantics, and in the exact modeling of many different kinds of relations. 

     This new collection of previously unpublished essays includes reflective analyses of the current state of logically possible worlds ontology and semantics in modal logic and philosophical thought experiments by such eminent logicians and philosophers of logic and language as Jean-Yves Beziau, Hans Burkhardt, Manfred Kupffer, Nicholas Rescher, Johan van Benthem, John Woods, and the contributing editors Guido Imaguire and Dale Jacquette.

The volume in its entirety represents a detailed and in-depth discussion of vital topics in the uses, abuses, meaning, and logical and metaphysical debate currently surrounding the concept of a logically possible world.
