Part II of On the Logic of Modalities

Stefania Centrone, Pierluigi Minari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The ultimate goal of this part is to show that a proper understanding of the problem of modalities gives insight (i) into the conceptual presuppositions at the basis of the intuitionistic foundation of mathematics as well as (ii) into the relations between classical and intuitionistic logic. And, finally, (iii) to bring to light the relations between the alethic modalities, necessity and possibility, and the temporal modes of the present, on the one side, and on the past and the future of the other side.
