They are now offered in a readily accessible form. This first volume is devoted to Lewis's work in philosophical logic. Topics covered include the formal semantics of natural languages; model-theoretic investigations of intensional logic; contradiction and relevance, the distinction between analog and digital representation; attempts to draw anti-mechanistic conclusions from Godel's theorem; Carnap's Aufbau; mereology and its relationship to set theory. The purpose of this collection, and the two volumes to follow, is to disseminate more widely the work of an eminent and influential contemporary philosopher. The volume will serve as a useful work of reference for teachers and students of philosophy.
