In Modal common sense for Open Minds, Johan van Benthem offers an advent to the sphere of modal common sense, outlining its significant principles and exploring the varied ways that quite a few educational fields have followed it.

2 (a) Let the axiomatic basis of K* be the same as for K except that N is replaced by the axiom L T : L(p 3 p), and the rule R* ko3/3-, j-La 3 L/3 (R* is DR1 but taken as a primitive transformation rule). Show that K and K* have the same theorems. (b) Let K** be K but with N and K replaced by L T , R* and K2* (Lp A Lq) 3 L(p A q) (IQ* is K2 but taken as an axiom). Show that K and K** have the same theorems. 3 Let T* be the same as T except that in place of K, T* contains K* W@ IJ 4) 1 (Lp 1 Lq)) and in place of N, T* contains R*.

3 The word ‘frame’ in this sense seems to have been first used in print in Segerberg 1968b, but Segerberg has informed US that the word was suggested to him by Dana Scott. Lemmon and Scott 1977 called frames ‘world systems’. Kripke 1963a used the term ‘model structure’ in a related but not quite identical sense. At this point it might be worth stressing again that the nature of the ‘worlds’ does not affect the logic. In fact if we take any frame and make an isomorphic ‘duplicate’, in which the duplicate worlds are related exactly as the originals are, we clearly validate exactly the same formulae.

533-535). 53). Feys derived the system by dropping one of the axioms in a system devised by Code1 1933 (p. 39), with whom the idea of axiomatizing modal logic by adding to PC originates. Sobociriski (op. ) showed that T is equivalent to the system M of von Wright 1951; for this reason ‘M’ is often used as an alternative name for T. In this book we shall usually refer to systems by names which have become standard, but it might be worth referring, at this point, to an alternative naming system found in Chellas 1980 in the spirit of Lemmon and Scott 1977.
