MY617 (Murphy 617)

The attempt to construct a logic of entailment was one of the original motivations for modern modal logic, but it has been all but abandoned in contemporary philosophy of logic. This paper looks at the idea of a logic of entailment and sets out a new semantic approach. This is the eighth variation that I have given of this talk. I will give it no more. Hence, it is the finale!
