## MacColl's Modes of Modalities

Hugh MacColl is commonly seen as a pioneer of modal and many-valued logic, given his introduction of modalities that go beyond plain truth and falsehood. But a closer examination shows that such a legacy is debatable and should take into account the way in which these modalities proceeded. We argue that, while MacColl devised a modal logic in the broad sense of the word, he did not give rise to a many-valued logic in the strict sense. Rather, his logic is similar to a “non-Fregean logic”: an algebraic logic that partitions the semantic classes of truth and falsehood into subclasses but does not extend the range of truth-values.

Recently some elaborations were made concerning the game theoretic semantic of Lℵ0 and its extension. In the paper this kind of semantics is developed for Dishkant’s quantum modal logic LQ which is also, in fact, the speciﬁc extension of Lℵ0 . As a starting point some game theoretic interpretation for the S L system (extending both Lukasiewicz logic Lℵ0 and modal logic S5) was exploited which has been proposed in 2006 by C.Ferm˝uller and R.Kosik . They, in turn, based on ideas already introduced by Robin Giles in the 1970th to obtain a characterization of Lℵ0 in terms of a Lorenzen style dialogue game combined with bets on the results of binary experiments that may show dispersion.

*Advances in Modal Logic* is a bi-annual international conference and book series in Modal Logic. The aim of the conference series is to report on important new developments in pure and applied modal logic, and to do so at varying locations throughout the world. The book series is based on the conferences. Please consult thebackground pages for further details.

In this paper we introduce public announcements to Subset Space Logic (SSL). In order to do this we have to change the original semantics for SSL a little and consider a weaker version of SSL without the cross axiom. We present an axiomatization, prove completeness and show that this logic is PSPACE-complete. Finally, we add the arbitrary announcement modality which expresses ``true after any announcement'', prove several semantic results, and show completeness for a Hilbert-style axiomatization of this logic.

We consider modal logics of products of neighborhood frames and prove that for any pair L and L' of logics from set {S4, D4, D, T} modal logic of products of L-neighborhood frames and L'-neighborhood frames is the fusion of L and L'.

The article considers the Views of L. N. Tolstoy not only as a representative, but also as a accomplisher of the Enlightenment. A comparison of his philosophy with the ideas of Spinoza and Diderot made it possible to clarify some aspects of the transition to the unique Tolstoy’s religious and philosophical doctrine. The comparison of General and specific features of the three philosophers was subjected to a special analysis. Special attention is paid to the way of thinking, the relation to science and the specifics of the worldview by Tolstoy and Diderot. An important aspect is researched the contradiction between the way of thinking and the way of life of the three philosophers.

Tolstoy's transition from rational perception of life to its religious and existential bases is shown. Tolstoy gradually moves away from the idea of a natural man to the idea of a man, who living the commandments of Christ. Starting from the educational worldview, Tolstoy ended by creation of religious and philosophical doctrine, which were relevant for the 20th century.

This important new book offers the first full-length interpretation of the thought of Martin Heidegger with respect to irony. In a radical reading of Heidegger's major works (from *Being and **Time* through the ‘Rector's Address' and the ‘Letter on Humanism' to ‘The Origin of the Work of Art' and the *Spiegel* interview), Andrew Haas does not claim that Heidegger is simply being ironic. Rather he argues that Heidegger's writings make such an interpretation possible - perhaps even necessary.

Heidegger begins *Being and Time* with a quote from Plato, a thinker famous for his insistence upon Socratic irony. *The Irony of Heidegger *takes seriously the apparently curious decision to introduce the threat of irony even as philosophy begins in earnest to raise the question of the meaning of being. Through a detailed and thorough reading of Heidegger's major texts and the fundamental questions they raise, Haas reveals that one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century can be read with as much irony as earnestness.* The Irony of Heidegger* attempts to show that the essence of this irony lies in uncertainty, and that the entire project of onto-heno-chrono-phenomenology, therefore needs to be called into question.

The article is concerned with the notions of technology in essays of Ernst and Friedrich Georg Jünger. The special problem of the connection between technology and freedom is discussed in the broader context of the criticism of culture and technocracy discussion in the German intellectual history of the first half of the 20th century.
