PHIL 474 - Possible Worlds (3)


There are numerous ways the world might have been different. Possible worlds provide a way of making sense of this. For every way the world might be there is purported to be a possible world that is that way. Possible worlds have been introduced primarily to deal with modal notions, such as necessity and possibility, but they have also proved fruitful in dealing with a number of other philosophical issues, such as the nature of properties, propositions, causation, laws, and counterfactuals. This course will look at various accounts of what possible worlds are and how they can be used to address various philosophical issues. Recommended Preparation: One 300-level course in philosophy with a grade of C or better, especially PHIL 346 , PHIL 371 , PHIL 372 , PHIL 373 , or PHIL 380 .
