His early masterpiece, Naming and Necessity, reversed the pattern of two centuries of philosophizing about the necessary and the contingent. Although much of his work remains unpublished, several major essays have now appeared in print, most recently in his long-awaited collectionPhilosophical Troubles.In this book Kripkes long-time colleague, the logician and philosopher John P. Burgess, offers a thorough and self-contained guide to all of Kripkes published books and his most important philosophical papers, old and new.

It also provides an authoritative but non-technical account of Kripkes influential contributions to the study of modal logic and logical paradoxes. Although Kripke has been anything but a system-builder, Burgess expertly uncovers the connections between different parts of his oeuvre. Kripke is shown grappling, often in opposition to existing traditions, with mysteries surrounding the nature of necessity, rule-following, and the conscious mind, as well as with intricate and intriguing puzzles about identity, belief and self-reference.

Clearly contextualizing the full range of Kripkes work, Burgess outlines, summarizes and surveys the issues raised by each of the philosophers major publications.Kripkewill be essential reading for anyone interested in the work of one of analytic philosophys greatest living thinkers.
