Show Summary Details

Preview

Critical discussion of attempts by Davis, Stalnaker, Ellis, and Edgington to unify indicative and subjunctive conditionals within a single smooth theory. Edgington's work on this goes a long way, but one class of subjunctives refuses to submit to her treatment in which indicatives are supposed to call the tune.

Keywords: conditionals; Davis; Ellis; Edgington; indicative conditionals; Stalnaker; subjunctive conditionals
