Congratulations to Professor Franz Huber on his latest book, Belief and Counterfactuals: A Study in Means-End Philosophy (Oxford University Press, 2021). This marks the first of two volumes on the topic, providing an introduction to ranking theory, a powerful formal theory with a broad range of applications in various areas of analytic philosophy. Drawing on formal logic, ranking theory can account for degrees of belief, which can change with the introduction of new information. Though based on Huber’s technical writings, this volume aims at a wide-ranging audience in its accessibility.
