Abstract
Conditional structures lie at the heart of the sciences, humanities, and everyday reasoning. It is hence not surprising that conditional logics – logics specifically designed to account for natural language conditionals – are an active and interdisciplinary area. The present book gives a formal and a philosophical account of indicative and counterfactual conditionals in terms of Chellas-Segerberg semantics. For that purpose a range of topics are discussed such as Bennett’s arguments against truth value based semantics for indicative conditionals
Keywords Chellas-Segerberg Semantics  Conditional Logic  Modal Logic  Probabilistic Semantics  Ramsey Test  Lewis’ Triviality Result  Gibbardian Stand-Off  Correspondence, Soundness and Completeness  Indicative Conditionals  Counterfactuals
