Necessity and Color IncompatibilityDisputatio
AbstractA traditional view is that all necessary truths are analytic. A frequent objection is that certain claims of color incompatibility – e.g., 'Nothing is both red and green all over' – are necessarily true but not analytic. I argue that this objection to the traditional view fails because such color incompatibility claims are either analytic or contingent.
