Note: This is the re-issue of a previously published book.

On Conditionals provides the first major cross-disciplinary account of
conditional (if-then) constructions. Conditional sentences directly reflect
the language user's ability to reason about alternatives, uncertainties,
and unrealised contingencies. An understanding of the conceptual and
behavioural organisation involved in the construction and interpretation of
these kinds of sentences therefore provides fundamental insights into the
inferential strategies and the cognitive and linguistic processes of human
beings. The present volume brings together studies from several
perspectives - philosophical, linguistic and psychological - and aims to
emphasise the intrinsic connections between the issues to be addressed and
to point to new directions for interdisciplinary work.
