A compilation of articles about Intensionality in philosophy, logic, linguistics, and mathematics. The articles approach the concept of Intensionality from different perspectives. Some articles address philosophical issues raised by the possible worlds approach to intensionality; others are devoted to technical aspects of modal logic. The volume highlights the particular interdisciplinary nature of intensionality with articles spanning the areas of philosophy, linguistics, mathematics, and computer science.
