Abstract [en]

Modal logic is one of philosophy’s many children. As a mature adult it has moved out of the parental home and is nowadays straying far from its parent. But the ties are still there: philosophy is important for modal logic, modal logic is important for philosophy. Or, at least, this is a thesis we try to defend in this chapter.
