Title: Philosophy Department Seminar: Koji Tanaka (ANU) & Alexander  
Sandgren (Umeå)
The next philosophy department seminar will take place on 30 September at  
3:30pm on Zoom. Please find more details about the talk and the Zoom link  
below.---------What’s So Impossible About Impossible Worlds?Koji Tanaka  
(ANU) and Alexander Sandgren (Umeå)Possible worlds are ubiquitous in  
contemporary philosophy. Impossible worlds are also gaining currency partly  
because it is often crucial to make distinctions between necessarily  
equivalents in so called hyperintensional contexts.  
Hyperintensionality is commonly handled by adding impossible worlds into  
more traditional possible worlds based accounts of modal phenomena. As  
their utility becomes more widely appreciated, we would like to step back  
for a moment and ask a question about impossible worlds: what’s so  
impossible about them? What, exactly, makes an impossible world impossible?  
In literature, three features have been proposed as the key to  
understanding what makes impossible worlds impossible: logical violation,  
logical difference and openness. We will show that the notion of logical  
violation is key to understanding what makes a world impossible. We will  
then show that if there is anything impossible about logically different  
worlds and open worlds, this impossibility is best understood in terms  
of logical violation (though logically different and open worlds need  
not themselves contain logical violations). Finally, we will outline some  
challenges facing those seeking to analyse impossibility primarily in terms  
of logical difference or openness.----------Hi there,
