Abstract

My aim, in this paper, is not to discuss the standard response to the non-detachment objection (viz., the quest for a non-material detachable conditional), but rather to show that the objection can be met at a much earlier stage. Nothing I say, in this work, argues against the quest for detachable conditionals. What I hope to show is that the given objection can be met via an alternative route, one that doesn't point beyond the material conditional to a (highly complicated) detachable conditional.
