This article sketches some elements of modal logic, on the basis of a logical game which was created by Hughes and Cresswell. Several variants of these games are determined by the different relations of perception among the participants (which «worlds» are represented). It will be discussed, why an obvious variation of the game, in which no self-perception exists, is tacitly omitted by both the authors. A missing variant is added because it just makes it possible to conduct a structural analysis for the important social phenomenon of the acknowledgement relation.


  • 1. Worlds, relations and modal logic
  • 2. Why hasn’t the relation of self-perception appeared so far
  • 3. A suggestion to partly maintain the reflexivity
