Possible Worlds: A Neo-Fregean Alternative

Axiomathes 21 (4):531-551 (2011)
Abstract
I outline a neo-Fregean strategy in the debate on the existence of possible worlds. The criterion of identity and the criterion of application are formulated. Special attention is paid to the fact that speakers do not possess proper names for worlds. A broadly Quinean solution is proposed in response to this difficulty
