The twenty-five essays that shape this quantity will, we think, inspire English-reading philosophers and scientists to hunt additional works via those authors and by way of their lecturers, colleagues, and scholars; and, we are hoping, to appear for these different Italian currents of proposal within the philosophy of technological know-how for which issues of departure are usually not utterly analytic, and which additionally deserve research and popularity on the earth­ vast philosophical neighborhood. after all, Italy has lengthy been on the topic of that international neighborhood in scien­ titlc matters.

Fig. 2 accessibility is always present. Each situation always has a temporal evolution that is among its own relative possibilities. Let P s be the set of situations accessible from s, namely the points of Figure 1 that are connected upward to a given point s by an arrow. Let Ts be the set of situations which are temporally accessible from s. We have Ts £: P s. Furthermore we put: for every s, if P s '# 0 then Ts '# 0. If there exist possibilities, there exist temporal possibilities. Instead of --+, write => to denote temporal accessibility.
