Abstract
In this article, I want to focus on time and development in Kripke’s “Naming and Necessity” by considering two topics: the evolution of scientific knowledge; the evolution of biographies. In connection with I suggest the introduction of a sentence operator for epistemic possibility and argue that some of Kripke’s strong metaphysical statements are finely counterbalanced by rather “Popperian” epistemological considerations. In connection with I consider the idea of exploiting necessity of origin for a crossworld identity criterion.
