KRIPKE, S. A.,
Reference and Existence. The John Locke Lectures.
Oxford University Press, 2013. 184p. Hardback. For one thing, Reference and Existence includes many long, substantive footnotes (obviously composed very recently) that demonstrate that in his [Kripke's] seventies he is capable of philosophical thinking of the same high order that made him famous when he was a young man ... I cannot possibly convey, within the scope of this review, the subtlety, richness and beautiful logical coherence of Kripke's treatment of the ontology of fiction. It is a good thing that these superb lectures have finally been published Peter Van Inwagen, The Times Literary Suppliment 14/03/14 (Publisher's information).
