Lee Walters and John Hawthorne

Abstract

This is a volume of essays in philosophy and linguistics in tribute to Dorothy Edgington, the first woman to hold a chair in philosophy in the University of Oxford. The volume focuses on topics to which Edgington has made many important contributions including conditionals, vagueness, the paradox of knowability, and probability. The volume will be of interest to philosophers, linguists, and psychologists with an interest in philosophical logic, natural language semantics, and reasoning.

Keywords: Dorothy Edgington, Conditionals, Vagueness, Church-Fitch Paradox, Semantics, Philosophy of Language, Philosophical Logic
