Counterfactuality is currently a hotly debated topic. While for some disciplines
such as linguistics, cognitive science, or psychology counterfactual scenarios
have been an important object of study for quite a while, counterfactual thinking
has in recent years emerged as a method of study for other disciplines, most
notably the social sciences. This volume provides an overview of the current
definitions and uses of the concept of counterfactuality in philosophy,
historiography, political sciences, psychology, linguistics, physics, and literary
studies. The individual contributions not only engage the controversies that the
deployment of counterfactual thinking as a method still generates, they also
highlight the concept's potential to promote interdisciplinary exchange without
neglecting the limitations and pitfalls of such a project. Moreover, the essays
from literary studies, which make up about half of the volume, provide both a
historical and a systematic perspective on the manifold ways in which
counterfactual scenarios can be incorporated into and deployed in literary texts.
