In this paper, I investigate a system of quantified modal logic, due in many respects to Bressan (see ), from several perspectives -- both semantic and proof-theoretic. As Anderson and Belnap note in : "It seems to be generally conceded that formal systems are natural or substantial if they can be looked at from several points of view. We tend to think of systems as artificial or ad hoc if most of their formal properties arise from some one notational system in terms of which they are described." My efforts in this paper will be in part to lend substantiality to the system in question. Several formulation of the system are given and proved equivalent in appropriate senses. Also, some comments are made concerning possible alternative formulations
