The Nature of Necessity (Clarendon Library of Logic and Philosophy) - Alvin Plantinga

This is a reissue of a book which is an exploration and defence of the notion of modality ... more

'de re', the idea that objects have both essential
and accidental properties. It is one of the first
full-length studies of the modalities to emerge
from the debate to which Saul Kripke, David Lewis,
Ruth Marcus and others have contributed. The
argument is developed by means of the notion of
possible worlds, and ranges over key problems
including the nature of essence, trans-world
identity, negative existential propositions, and
the existence of unactual objects in other
possible worlds. In the final chapters Professor
Plantinga applies his logical theories to the
clarification of two problems in the philosophy of
religion - the Problem of Evil and the Ontological
Argument.
