The Worlds of Possibility: Modal Realism and the Semantics of Modal Logic

Oxford University Press (1998)
Abstract
A powerful challenge to some highly influential theories, this book offers a thorough critical exposition of modal realism, the philosophical doctrine that many possible worlds exist of which our own universe is just one. Chihara challenges this claim and offers a new argument for modality without worlds.
