Essentialist Blindness would not preclude counterfactual knowledge

Abstract
This paper does two things. First, it defends, against a potential threat to it, the claim that a capacity for essentialist knowledge should not be placed among the core capacities for counterfactual knowledge. Second, it assesses a consequence of that claim—or better: of the discussion by means of which I defend it—in relation to Kment's and Williamson's views on the relation between modality and counterfactuals.

Keywords
Epistemology of counterfactuals; Epistemology of modality
