Meaning and Necessity: A Study in Semantics and Modal Logic is a book about semantics and modal logic by the philosopher Rudolf Carnap. The book, in which Carnap discusses the nature of linguistic expressions, was a continuation of his previous work in semantics in Introduction to Semantics and Formalization of Logic. Considered an important discussion of semantics, it was influential and provided a basis for further developments in modal : Rudolf Carnap. Modal Homotopy Type Theory The Prospect of a New Logic for Philosophy David Corfield. The first book-length philosophical treatment of homotopy type theory, and its modal variants ; With applications in language, metaphysics and mathematics, the reader is shown the power of the new language.

These and other innovations provide philosophers with easy access to a rich variety of topics in modal logic, including a full coverage of quantified modal logic, non-rigid designators, definite descriptions, and the de-re de-dicto distinction. Discussion of philosophical issues concerning the development of modal logic is woven into the : Cambridge University Press. Modal Logic: An Introduction to its Syntax and Semantics. Book Title:Modal Logic: An Introduction to its Syntax and Semantics. In this text, a variety of modal logics at the sentential, firstorder, and secondorder levels are developed with clarity, precision and philosophical insight.

What it is is a book about how to do modal logic. There are three levels involved with modal logic. The first is syntax -- rules about how to operate the squiggles on the page to obtain other squiggles. The second is semantics -- what the syntactical rules are named and how the rules are to /5(4). Aristotle's Modal Logic, first published in , presents an interpretation of Aristotle's logic by arguing that a proper understanding of the system depends on an appreciation of its connection to the metaphysics. Richard Patterson develops three striking theses in the by:
