I will be talking in this paper about the problem of presupposition failure. Philosophical Troubles is the first volume of Saul Kripke’s collected papers. It was originally to be called Bandersnatches in Dubuque, and Other Philosophical Troubles, after the observation, of which more later, that whatever bandersnatches may be, certainly there are none in Dubuque.

Several of the chapters explore the metaontology of abstract objects, and more generally of objects that are ‘preconceived’, their principal features being settled already by their job-descriptions.

Things: Essays on Objects, Events, and Properties more. Colyvan raises two problems for easy road nominalism about mathematical objects. The first is that a theory’s mathematical commitments may run too deep to permit the extraction of nominalistic content more.

Things is a collection of twelve essays by Stephen Yablo on metaphysics. He examines a range of first-order topics, including identity, coincidence, essence, causation, and properties. Some first-order debates are not worth pursuing, he argues: there is nothing at issue in them. Several of the papers explore the metaontology of abstract objects, and more generally of objects that are 'preconceived', their principal features being settled already by their job-descriptions. He rejects standard forms of fictionalism, opting ultimately for a view that puts presupposition in the role normally played by pretense. Almost all of Yablo's published work on these topics is collected here, along with the previously unpublished 'Carving Content at the Joints'.
