Project Title: Ordering the Impossible: Extending entertainability criteria in world semantics

Principal Advisor: Dr Dominic Hyde

Project Abstract: The thesis aims to develop a meaningful and robust set of criteria for establishing the degrees of comparative similarity among the elements of an extended class of world representations. The project's direction is primarily guided by two, well motivated applications of such non-classical semantics ― to provide an extended semantic foundation for a theory of non-vacuous analysis of counterpossibles, and to extend possible worlds theories of intension to an adequate analysis of contexts containing hyperintensional phenomena.
