9780631128014: Naming and Necessity

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.

About the Author:

Saul Kripke, McCosh Professor of Philosophy,Princeton,
is a philosopher of international reputation. His Naming and
Necessity
(Harvard University Press, 1980) is also available in paperback.

Review:

"Brilliant and very influential . . . stands up as an impressive and enduring work of philosophy, outstanding in its sweep, clarity and penetration."—Colin McGinn, Times Higher Education Supplement


"When these lectures were first published eight years ago, they stood analytic philosophy on its ear. Everybody was either furious, or exhilarated, or thoroughly perplexed. No one was indifferent. This welcome republication provides a chance to look back at a modern classic, and to say something about why it was found so shocking and liberating."—Richard Rorty, London Review of Books
