Naming and Necessity, Paperback

Naming and Necessity Paperback



'Naming and Necessity' has had a great and increasing influence.

It redirected philosophical attention to neglected questions of natural and metaphysical necessity and to the connections between these and theories of naming, and of identity.

This seminal work, to which today's thriving essentialist metaphysics largely owes its impetus, is here reissued in a newly corrected form with a new preface by the author.

If there is such a thing as essential reading in metaphysics, or in philosophy of language, this is it.
