Lewis's view on counterfactuals

timer Asked: Jul 10th, 2015

Question description

In my metaphysics class, I am asked to first, explain how, on Lewis’s view, the following sentence is true: (a) Obama is contingently the president of the US and second, present the objection that Lewis’s account fails to adequately account for the truth of (a) because his account doesn’t sufficiently focus on Obama.

I am having trouble understanding Lewis's view when it comes to the truth of the sentence.
