A Philosophical Guide to Conditionals
Bennett's welcome guide . . . exhibits good common sense . . . presents good explanations of technical work to nontechnical readers, and most importantly, provides the only book available where we can find the whole literature on conditionals vigorously explained and analyzed. - Richard Mendelsohn, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews;Jonathan Bennett sets out in this ambitious project to provide a complete and thorough guide to the subject of philosophical conditionals. I suspect that in lesser hands this text could have become something of a chore, taking on, as it does, aspects of semantics that are highly technical and difficult to work through. But in this case the results are delightful. Bennett explores the field of conditionals without needless technicality, (indeed on occasion one wonders that others have managed to make such heavy work in a field that seems so simple when presented thus) is pellucidly clear at all times and, above all, makes the topic of conditionals interesting and relevant to the reader. - Jonathan Tallant, Philosophical Writings
