Summary and Concluding Remarks

Part of the Philosophical Studies Series in Philosophy book series (PSSP, volume 18)


With the main task of Chapter 10 complete, we have available all we need to justify the three premises of the master argument that we have not yet examined. To see that the material for this last task can be found in the previous chapters, and to help recall my overall aim and strategy in this book, let me begin this final stage of the work by presenting a general overview of the main goals and the major accomplishments that have resulted from the many, small, piecemeal arguments, objectives, proposals, and rejections that have populated the preceding chapters.
