Abstract
: The paper surveys and streamlines recent developments in the dynamics of meaning. Update semantics captures an epistemic meaning of "might" which cannot be captured in S5. A simplified version of the translation of the update semantics into S5 which does not lead to the collapse of dynamic distinction is presented. It rests upon notions borrowed from programming languages.
