Table of contents
"Destined to become a classic, this is the best systematic overview of Saul Kripke's major contributions to philosophy. While each chapter and appendix provides an excellent introduction for those new to the material, old hands will relish Burgess's provocative takes on Kripkean views of belief, rule-following, and the mind. The explanation of the connection between Kripke's technical and philosophical work on truth and modality is masterful."
Scott Soames, University of Southern California
"Burgess provides a masterful introduction to Kripke's philosophy, but this volume is more than that; it is a first-rate piece of philosophy in its own right, as one would expect from one of the leading philosophers of mathematics in the world."
Mark Steiner, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
