This chapter analyzes the Textbook Kripkeanism about conceivability and possibility. It argues that Textbook Kripkeanism is not right. The ‘good news’ that E's conceivability ensures its possibility whenever no obfuscating presentation suggests itself is too good to be true.

Keywords:   conceivability, possibility, Kripke, consciousness, Jackson, Chalmers, physicalism
