    • How Expressivists Can and Should Explain Inconsistency 

      Baker, D.; Woods, J. (University of Chicago Press, 2015)
      We argue that several difficulties facing expressivist solutions to the Frege-Geach problem are paralleled by almost exactly analogous problems facing realist semantic theories. We show that by adopting a variation on a ...

      Wigley, S. (Springer Verlag, 2012)

    • Lewis' Reduction of Modality 

      Berkovski, S. (Springer Netherlands, 2011)

      Wringe, B. (University of Illinois Press, 2014)
