Books By Author Timothy Williamson

Tetralogue by Timothy Williamson Tetralogue, Paperback (January 2017)

Four people with radically different views meet on a train and talk about what they believe. Each starts off convinced that he or she is right; then doubts creep in. Timothy Williamson uses a fictional conversation to explore the philosophical debate over whether one point of view can be right and the other wrong. He invites the reader to decide.

Modal Logic as Metaphysics by Timothy Williamson Modal Logic as Metaphysics, Paperback (February 2015)

Timothy Williamson gives an original and provocative treatment of deep metaphysical questions about existence, contingency, and change, using the latest resources of quantified modal logic. Contrary to the widespread assumption that logic and metaphysics are disjoint, he argues that modal logic provides a structural core for metaphysics.
