Intensional Logic: intensional logic is a logic that goes beyond the examination of the possibilities of linking fixed (extensional) statements. Problems occur in the context of meaning shifts of intensions (statements that are relativized to speakers and situations). A central problem is the impossibility of quantifying into intensional contexts, that is, e.g. to conclude from a dream the existence of the dreamed content. The treatment of possibility and necessity also belongs to the intensional logic. See also modal logic, possible worlds, semantics of possible worlds, intensions, propositions, opacity, possibility, necessity. _____________ Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.
