Recently, the ‘extensional fragment’ of natural language has come into its own as a source of important semantic concerns. The previous chapters bear witness to this tendency — postponing the well-known puzzles of intensionality. Nevertheless, our investigation is not at all restricted to the extensional realm — and we shall study some central intensional notions in the next two chapters. The first topic is that of conditional statements, perhaps the principal concern of logic, which shows striking parallels with the earlier area of determiners.
