The languages of modal logic are typically taken to be examples of intensional languages par excellence. I will argue that, in the case of most modal logics applied in philosophy, this is a mistake. The "Modal Rubicon" separating the intensional from the extensional turns out to be a modal logic's susceptibility to the addition of the actuality operator.
