Saul Kripke is one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. His most celebrated work, Naming and Necessity, makes arguably the most important contribution to the philosophy of language and metaphysics in recent years. Asking fundamental questions – how do names refer to things in the world? Do objects have essential properties? What are natural kind terms and to what do they refer? – he challenges prevailing theories of language and conceptions of metaphysics, especially the descriptivist account of reference, which Kripke argues is found in Frege, Wittgenstein and Russell, and the anti-essentialist metaphysics of Quine. In this invaluable guidebook to Kripke's classic work, Harold Noonan introduces and assesses: Kripke's life and the background to his philosophy the ideas and text of Naming and Necessity the continuing importance of Kripke's work to the philosophy of language and metaphysics. The Routledge Philosophy GuideBook to Kripke and Naming and Necessity is an ideal starting point for anyone coming Kripke's work for the first time. It is essential reading for philosophy students studying philosophy of language, metaphysics, logic, or the history of analytic philosophy.

If there is such a thing as essential reading in metaphysics or in philosophy of language, this is it. Ever since the publication of its original version, Naming and Necessity has had great and increasing influence. It redirected philosophical attention to neglected questions of natural and metaphysical necessity and to the connections between these and theories of reference, in particular of naming, and of identity. From a critique of the dominant tendency to assimilate names to descriptions and more generally to treat their reference as a function of their Fregean sense, surprisingly deep and widespread consequences may be drawn. The largely discredited distinction between accidental and essential properties, both of individual things (including people) and of kinds of things, is revived. So is a consequent view of science as what seeks out the essences of natural kinds. Traditional objections to such views are dealt with by sharpening distinctions between epistemic and metaphysical necessity; in particular by the startling admission of necessary a posteriori truths. From these, in particular from identity statements using rigid designators whether of things or of kinds, further remarkable consequences are drawn for the natures of things, of people, and of kinds; strong objections follow, for example to identity versions of materialism as a theory of the mind. This seminal work, to which today's thriving essentialist metaphysics largely owes its impetus, is here published with a substantial new Preface by the author.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Theoretische (Erkenntnis, Wissenschaft, Logik, Sprache), Note: 1,3, Universität Potsdam, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der amerikanische Philosoph Saul Aaron Kripke hielt 1970 eine Reihe von drei Vorlesungen, deren Ideen eine kleine Revolution in der Philosophie nach sich zogen. Später entstand aus den Mitschriften dieser Vorlesungen dann das Buch „Naming and Necessity“. Kripke greift zwei weitestgehend akzeptierte Paradigmen seiner Zeit an. Zum einen ist das die Kennzeichnungstheorie welche sich damit beschäftigt, was Namen eigentlich sind und wie sie mit der Sache zusammenhängen, die sie bezeichnen. Und die zweite bezieht sich auf „Necessity“ also auf den Begriff der Notwendigkeit, hierbei geht es vor allem darum, wie er damit zusammenhängt ob man etwas a priori erkennen kann und ob es notwendige Eigenschaften gibt. In dieser Arbeit werden zunächst die eben erwähnten Theorien, welche sich vor Kripke etabliert hatten genauer dargestellt. Danach wird es um die Kritik gehen welche Kripke daran übt und die Theorie (beziehungsweise das Bild wie er es nennt), welches er alternativ dazu vorschlägt und abschließend wird Kripkes Standpunkt zu Identitätsaussagen, der sich aus seiner restlichen Theorie ergibt, erläutert.

Personal Identity is a comprehensive introduction to the nature of the self and its relation to the body. Harold Noonan places the problem of personal identity in the context of more general puzzles about identity, discussing the major historical theories and more recent debates. The second edition of Personal Identity contains a new chapter on 'animalism' and a new section on vagueness.
