COLOMINA ALMINANA, Juan José. Understanding Presupossition as Anaphora Some Problems on Kripke's Account. Prax. filos. [online]. 2011, n.32, pp. 207-230. ISSN 0120-4688.
According to Kripke, the traditional approaches to presupposition do not work in some compound sentences because the presuppositions from their component clauses traditionally assign presuppositions to each clause in isolation. I agree with this criticism, but I think that a contextual requirement is sometimes needed in order to determinate the meaning of presupposition included in a complex sentence, and this view can solve some problems in Kripke's semantic approach.
