Chapter 2 provides the semantics for identity in the context of intentional operators. The key feature of the semantics is the failure of substitutivity of identicals in intentional contexts. This is used to provide a solution to the Hooded Man and similar paradoxes.

Keywords: identity; substitutivity of identicals; intentional contexts; Hooded Man Paradox
