A textbook for modal and other intensional logics based on the Open Logic Project. It covers normal modal logics, relational semantics, axiomatic and tableaux proof systems, intuitionistic logic, and counterfactual conditionals.
This repository/directory only contains the LaTeX files and illustrations needed to typeset the textbook Boxes and Diamonds, which in turn requires the Open Logic Text.
You can download the PDF of the most recent version from the Open Logic builds site, or order a hardcopy from Amazon [US] [CA] [UK] [DE].

Both versions load

OpenLogic repository. So you won’t get a complete book unless you download into the right subdirectory of and compile from there.
