Modalities : philosophical essays by Ruth Barcan Marcus( Book )
33 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 486 libraries worldwide
Informed by her earlier ground-breaking axiomatizations of quantified modal logic, the papers collected here by the distinguished philosopher Ruth Barcan Marcus cover much ground in the development of her thought from 1961 to 1990. The first essay introduces themes initially viewed as iconoclastic, such as the necessity of identity, the directly referential role of proper names as "tags," the Barcan Formula about the interplay of possibility and existence, and alternative interpretations of quantification. Marcus also addresses the putative puzzles about substitutivity and about essentialism. The collection also includes influential essays on moral conflict, on belief and rationality, and on some historical figures. Though many of her views have been incorporated into current theories, others remain part of continuing philosophical debate
Modality, morality, and belief : essays in honor of Ruth Barcan Marcus ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
Modality, morality, and belief are among the most controversial topics in philosophy today, and few philosophers have shaped these debates as deeply as Ruth Barcan Marcus. Inspired by her work, a distinguished group of philosophers explore these issues, refine and sharpen arguments, and develop new positions on such topics as possible worlds, moral dilemmas, essentialism, and the explanation of actions by beliefs. This "state-of-the-art" collection honors one of the most rigorous and iconoclastic of philosophical pioneers
