Soames explains how, in the last twenty-five years, this attack on the antidescriptivist revolution has coalesced around a technical development called two-dimensional modal logic that seeks to reinterpret the Kripkean categories of the necessary aposteriori and the contingent apriori in ways that drain them of their far-reaching philosophical significance. Arguing against this reinterpretation, Soames shows how the descriptivist revival has been aided by puzzles and problems ushered in by the antidescriptivist revolution, as well as by certain errors and missteps in the antidescriptivist classics themselves.
