Rigidity and the description of counterfactual situations

Theoria 13 (3):477-490 (1998)
Abstract
In this paper I discuss two approaches to rigidity. I argue that they differ in the general conception of semantics that each embraces. Moreover, I argue that they differ in how each explains the rigidity of general terms, and in what each presupposes in that explanation.
