Plural Quantification and Modality

Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 111 (2pt2):219-250 (2011)
Abstract
Identity is a modally inflexible relation: two objects are necessarily identical or necessarily distinct. However, identity is not alone in this respect. We will look at the relation that one object bears to some objects if and only if it is one of them. In particular, we will consider the credentials of the thesis that no matter what some objects are, an object is necessarily one of them or necessarily not one of them
