### Abstract

Abstract. This paper studies finitary modal logics as specification languages for Set-coalgebras (coalgebras on the category of sets) using Stone duality. It is wellknown that Set-coalgebras are not semantically adequate for finitary modal logics in the sense that bisimilarity does not in general coincide with logical equivalence.
