    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Den övergripande problemformuleringen i min doktorsavhandling, Kripke on Necessity: A Metaphysical Investigation, kan formuleras på följande sätt: På vilka metafysiska grunder rättfärdigar Kripke giltigheten och existensen av nödvändiga a posteriori och kontingenta a priori satser? Jag visar att Kripke-paradigmet för den metafysiska essentialismen vilar på ett fundamentalt antagande, nämligen Oberoendeaxiomet, som kan formuleras på följande vis: De metafysiska och epistemiska domänerna är distinkta och ömsesidigt oberoende. Min undersökning avser att synliggöra de logiska och ontologiska konsekvenser som följer av detta axiom med avseende på en rad Kripkeanska teser, så som: identitetsprincipen, rigid designation, nödvändiga och kontingenta egenskaper, föremålsbegreppet samt tänkbarhetsprincipen (conceivability).
