Dorothy Edgington

Oxford University Press

This chapter is an autobiographical piece, confined, largely, to the role of philosophy in Dorothy Edgington’s life. It sketches Edgington’s rather tortuous route into the subject, her time as a student, her subsequent career in London and Oxford, and also some of the visiting positions in other parts of the world that turned out to be significant for her. On some of her favourite topics—conditionals, probability, vagueness, knowability—she writes of how her interest in them arose, how it developed, and of some of the philosophers who have influenced her most, especially Ernest Adams, Jonathan Bennett, and Michael Dummett.

Keywords:   Edgington, conditionals, counterfactuals, vagueness, Adams, Bennett, Dummett
