Abstract: 

Nowadays, one of the most important discussions in modal logic and analytic metaphysics is the distinction between de dicto and de re modalities. For example one of the basic foundation of accepting essentialism is acceptance of de re necessity. This essay points to the history of this distinction in Islamic and Western Philosophy, and then deals with syntactical and semantical difference between these two kinds of modality, and compares this distinction with two similar distinctions, and finally looks at relationship of de dicto and de re modalities.
