- Berto and Jago question how to understand the impossible without collapsing into total incoherence. By considering the metaphysics of impossible worlds - and applying this concept to issues in logic, semantics, and philosophy - they offer a framework for obtaining a metaphysical, logical, and conceptual grasp of situations that simply cannot be.
