Abstract: Jonathan Lowe has argued that a particular variation on C.I. Lewis’ notion of strict implication avoids the paradoxes of strict implication. We show that Lowe’s notion of implication does not achieve this aim, and offer a general argument to demonstrate that no other variation on Lewis’ notion of constantly strict implication describes the logical behaviour of natural-language conditionals
in a satisfactory way.
