Abstract:

In this study we propose the standard modal logic KDC4 as the logic governing expressions about Utopia. We define a formal construction corresponding to Utopian expressions in ordinary language that we name utopian conditionals. They possess the singular properties of admitting Strengthening of the Antecedent while possibly defeating the rule of Modus Ponens. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this work is that, as far as the authors know, this is the first time a category of expressions in the ordinary language corresponding to these two singular properties is provided.
