Unintended Models, philosophy: a model results from a formula in logic, if its interpretation - the insertion of values instead of the free variables - gives a true statement. For axiom systems, one speaks of the set of models that the system allows to construct. The problem of the unintended models arises when a statement obtained in the system is indeterminate in one respect, so that in turn it allows different interpretations. See also indeterminacy.

Unintended models/not intended/interpretation/Simons: arise e.g. when one axioms a modal term non-modally. - analog: if one interprets a mereological term topologically because topologically all quantities exist (closed as open). - Modal/non-modal/(s): non-modal: do then exist necessary as well as non-technical terms equally (indistinguishable). - Solution/Simons: We can embed a non-modal theory in a modal. - Problem: the modalized theory cannot deal then with facts and actual existence.
