The natural-deduction deductive apparatus of Donald Kalish and Richard Montague from their textbook, Logic: Techniques of Formal Reasoning (second edition co-authored with Gary Mar) is extended to the most popular “normal” systems of modal propositional logic (T, B, S4, and S5) — the logic of what might have been — making significantly greater use of the Kalish-and-Montague deductive apparatus than had been utilized in the earlier attempts.

Keywords: deduction; Kalish; logic; modality; Montague
