Conditionals
By

Rating
"Conditionals" has at its centre an extended essay on this problematic and much-debated subject in the philosophy of language and logic, which the widely respected Oxford philosopher Michael Woods had been preparing for publication at the time of his death in 1993. Woods discusses the distinctions between different kinds of conditionals, and then goes on to cover a range of topics, including assertibility, conditional probability, possible-worlds theories, and conditional demands and questions. He ends by sketching a new theory of counterfactual conditionals. This essay is edited for publication by Woods's friend and colleague David Wiggins, and accompanied by a commentary specially written by a leading expert on the topic, Dorothy Edgington. The masterful and original treatment of conditionals presented in this book will demand the attention of all philosophers working in the area.

Reviews

All in all a first-rate volume. Highly commended. * Scott Sturgeon, MIND * A clear and thought-provoking essay... this book should be of great value when used as course material for upper level undergraduate and graduate level seminars, as well as a valuable resource for those interested in this area. * Jon M. Cogburn, Mathematical Reviews * Review from previous edition This is a very interesting investigation of natural language conditionals. Woods displays both a remarkably sensitive insight into examples of usage and an excellent grasp of the relevant literature. * William Harper, Bulletin of Symbolic Logic *
