9780199258871: A Philosophical Guide to Conditionals

Conditional sentences are among the most intriguing and puzzling features of language, and analysis of their meaning and function has important implications for, and uses in, many areas of philosophy. Jonathan Bennett, one of the world's leading experts, distils many years' work and teaching into this Philosophical Guide to Conditionals, the fullest and most authoritative treatment of the subject. An ideal introduction for undergraduates with a philosophical grounding, it also offers a rich source of illumination and stimulation for graduate students and professional philosophers.

About the Author:


Jonathan Bennett, who now lives on an island near Vancouver, British Columbia, was formerly Lecturer in Moral Science at the University of Cambridge, and Professor of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia and then at Syracuse University. He has held visiting positions at Cornell, Michigan, Pittsburgh, and Princeton, and has been a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, and a visiting Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford. He is Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the British Academy.

Review:


"The hulking literature on the logic and semantics of conditionals is cunning and daunting, and few thinkers on the world stage are equipped to coral and tame the beast as Bennet has... His writing is disarmingly casual and witty-quite remarkably so for such dense subject matter... Bennet's achievement is nothing less than monumental." -- The Review of Metaphysics

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Conditional sentences are among the most intriguing and puzzling features of language: analysis of their meaning and function has important implications for, and uses in, many areas of philosophy. Jonathan Bennett, one of the world s leading experts, distils many years work and teaching into this Philosophical Guide to Conditionals, the fullest and most authoritative treatment of the subject. The literature on conditionals is difficult - needlessly so. Bennett s treatment is meticulously careful and luminously clear. He presents and evaluates in detail various approaches to the understanding of indicative conditionals (like If Shakespeare didn t write Hamlet, some aristocrat did ) and subjunctive conditionals (like If rabbits had not been deliberately introduced into New Zealand, there would be none there today ); and he offers his own view, which will be recognized as a major original contribution to the subject. Journeying through this intellectual territory brings one into contact with the metaphysics of possible worlds, probability and belief-change, probability and logic, the pragmatics of conversation, determinism, ambiguity, vagueness, the law of excluded middle, facts versus events, and more. One might perhaps learn more philosophy from a thorough study of conditionals than from any other kind of work. Bennett s Guide is an ideal introduction for undergraduates with a philosophical grounding, and will also be a rich source of illumination and stimulation for graduate students and professional philosophers.
