Contingency Schwarz I 65
Contingency/possible worlds/Lewis/Black: you cannot limit the number of possible worlds because the totality of possible worlds does not exist in a possible world - ((s) analog: you cannot limit contingency, because this limit itself is non-contingent - different: "how many ways there are depends on the possibilities": circular - but contingency is analyzed on possible worlds - hence the number of possible worlds is not contingent.
