Are all counterfactuals true?
I am consideirng ‘true’ counterfactuals instantiating a possible world; that is to say; if there is a true counterfacutal, there is a world whereby the counterfactual obtained.
EXAMPLE: If I were a doctor, I wouldn’t sleep with my patients.
If T = There is a world Wx whereby this inference obtained, that I was a doctor and I didn’t sleep with my patients
Is it also true, to say that THere is a world where the OPPOSITE counterfactual obtained?
So T= “If I were a doctor, I WOULD sleep with my patients” -> there is such a world Wy whereby the states of affairs obtained where I was a doctor and DID sleep with patients.
I am having critical thoughts about how we enter possible worlds ontology and semantics into our philosophical vocabulary.
Michael wants to work on investigating a Kantian response to Lewisian worlds. Lewis’ influence is undeniable, and in a good way.
