This important new book is the first of a series of volumes collecting the essential articles by the highly influential philosopher Saul A. Kripke. It presents a mixture of published and unpublished articles from various stages of Kripke's storied career. Included here are seminal and much discussed pieces such as "Identity and Necessity," "Outline of a Theory of Truth," and "A Puzzle About Belief." More recent published articles include "Russell's Notion of Scope" and "Frege's Theory of Sense and Reference" among others. Several articles are published here for the first time, including both older works "Two Paradoxes of Knowledge," "Vacuous Names and Fictional Entities," "Nozick on Knowledge" as well as newer "The First Person" and "Unrestricted Exportation". "A Puzzle on Time and Thought" was written expressly for this volume. The publication of this volume-which ranges over epistemology, linguistics, pragmatics, philosophy of language, history of analytic philosophy, theory of truth, and metaphysics-represents a major event in contemporary analytic philosophy. When completed, this collection will be a testament to one of philosophy's greatest living figures.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What comes out from a collection like this is the recurring brilliance of insight that Kripke brings to whatever he reflects on. This collection is indispensable to serious students of Kripke. And that should include all of us. This is a monumental collection. * Michael Luntley, Philosophical Investigations *
Readers fond of the Greatest Hits will devour this book. You will not be disappointed in expecting savory new servings of philosophical substance sweetened by a familiar charm and wit. * Mark Crimmins, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
