Title: Tristan Haze
  'Air is airy'

Abstract: (...or, counterfactual invariance deciders and the analysis of  
necessity.) In my PhD thesis I gave an account of the conditions under  
which a proposition is necessarily true (in the sense isolated by Kripke).  
The account crucially involved a property of propositions called 'inherent  
counterfactual invariance'. The proposition 'Air is airy' (discussed  
recently by Jens Kipper) shows this account to be false. In this talk I  
will explain this, before suggesting that we try for an analysis which  
appeals to a relation of counterfactual invariance deciding between (sets  
of) propositions. This relation is plausibly a priori tractable, and can  
naturally (if more contentiously) be thought of as broadly semantic.
