A Computationally Grounded Dynamic Logic of Agency, with an Application to Legal Actions [chapter]

Andreas Herzig, Tiago de Lima, Emiliano Lorini, Nicolas Troquard
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this logic, the sentence 'group G sees to it that ϕ' is defined in terms of dynamic operators: it is paraphrased as 'group G is going to execute an action now such that whatever actions the agents outside  ...  In the second part of the article we extend DL-PC with operators modeling normative concepts, resulting in a logic DL-PC Leg .  ...  We would like to thank the reviewers of DEON 2012 for their careful reading of the paper and their detailed suggestions.  ...

Temporalised normative positions in defeasible logic

Guido Governatori, Antonino Rotolo, Giovanni Sartor
2005 Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Artificial intelligence and law - ICAIL '05  
We propose a computationally oriented non-monotonic multi-modal logic arising from the combination of temporalised agency and temporalised normative positions.  ...  We argue about the defeasible nature of these notions and then we show how to represent and reason with them in the setting of Defeasible Logic.  ...  Modal logics of agency are very general since actions are simply taken to be relationships between agents and states of affairs.  ...
