Abstract Intensional logic is the technical study of such intensional phenomena in human reasoning as modality, knowledge, or flow of time. These all require a richer semantic picture than standard truth value... in one static environment. Such a picture is provided by so-called possible worlds semantics, a paradigm which is surveyed in this book, both as to its external sources of motivation & as to the internal dynamics of the resulting programme. In particular, Manual of Intensional Logic presents the major classical topics, including modal logic, tense logic, & conditional logic, all of which illustrate motivations coming from philosophy & linguistics. The Book also discusses recent computational applications in computer science & AI. Finally, Manual of Intensional Logic takes up recent developments in the study of language & information making themselves felt in the area. The Book examines the role of partial information -- with illustrations drawn from different branches of Intensional Logic -- & various influences stemming from current theories of the semantics of natural language, involving generalized quantifiers & theories of types.
