Many important ideas discussed in analytic philosophy since the mid-20th century have been phrased in terms of possible worlds understood as mutually incompatible but intrinsically possible alternative scenarios . Such worlds involve a number of objects that enjoy various properties and are interrelated in different ways. Further, they provide circumstances of evaluation of suitable declarative sentences, allowing one to determine such sentences as true or false.
