The philosophy of modality investigates necessity and possibility, and related notions — are they objective features of mind-independent reality? If so, are they irreducible, or can modal facts be explained in other terms? This book presents new work on modality by established leaders in the field and by up-and-coming philosophers. Between them, the chapters address fundamental questions. This book is the first edited collection of papers on the work of one of the most seminal and profound contemporary philosophers. Over the last five decades, Kit Fine has made thought-provoking and innovative contributions to several areas of systematic philosophy, including philosophy of language, metaphysics, and the philosophy of mathematics, as well as to a number of topics in.

Mathematics of Modality by Robert Goldblatt, , available at Book Depository with free delivery : Robert Goldblatt. This chapter discusses the implications of the modal theory developed in this book in terms of mathematics. It focuses on Mathematical Realism, because its own position regarding the ontology of mathematics can only be appreciated by way of contrast with the metaphysical doctrines it rejects. Mathematical Realism is the view that mathematical objects exist and that mathematical terms, such Author: Charles S. Chihara.

The book demonstrates, then, how epistemic modality relates to the computational theory of mind; metaphysical modality; deontic modality; logical modality; the types of mathematical modality; to the epistemic status of undecidable propositions and abstraction principles in the philosophy of mathematics; to the apriori-aposteriori distinction.
