This introductory chapter begins by explaining the concept of subjunctive conditionals. It then reviews some previous analyses of counterfactuals, and more generally subjunctive conditionals, that will be relevant for the proposal to be developed in Chapter 3. Topics discussed include counterfactuals and possible worlds; doubly relative modality; and the pragmatics of subjunctive conditionals.

Keywords:   subjunctive conditionals, conditional sentences, counterfactuals, possible worlds, relative modality, pragmatics
