About the Authors
  • Mundos plausibles, mundos alternativos es un original estudio sobre el papel que juegan los juicios contrafácticos en la historia y en las ciencias sociales. Toda explicación sugiere ciertos juicios contrafácticos: pero, a diferencia de otros pensadores de la historia y las ciencias sociales, Geoffrey Hawthorn arguye que no existe una respuesta teórica a la pregunta sobre qué condicionales contrafácticos se deben admitir como válidos. Es necesario que usemos nuestro discernimiento, y en particular, el de orden práctico. Los juicios prácticos, sin embargo, son intrínsecamente particulares, y la discusión debe hacerse mediante ejemplos.
