An integrated theory of causal stories and evidential arguments

Floris Bex
2015 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law - ICAIL '15  
The talk will first discuss the integrated approach from an informal perspective , briefly touching on the strengths and weaknesses of stories and arguments.  ...  Thus, the decision about which facts to accept is based on the acceptability of the stories in light of the evidential arguments in the case.  ...  The talk will first discuss the integrated approach from an informal perspective , briefly touching on the strengths and weaknesses of stories and arguments.  ...

A hybrid formal theory of arguments, stories and criminal evidence

Floris J. Bex, Peter J. van Koppen, Henry Prakken, Bart Verheij
2010 Artificial Intelligence and Law  
In an argument-based approach to reasoning with evidence, the reasons for and against the occurrence of an event, e.g., based on witness testimony, are central.  ...  In the literature, two approaches to reasoning with evidence can be distinguished, one argument-based and one story-based.  ...  Acknowledgments The research reported in this paper has been performed in the project 'Making sense of evidence.  ...

Legal stories and the process of proof

Floris Bex, Bart Verheij
2012 Artificial Intelligence and Law  
Our evidential argumentation theory ET takes its inspiration from the ASPIC+ framework [25] , which integrates [26] and [23] 's ideas on rule-based argumentation and structured arguments within [14  ...  In this way, the evidence is used prove or disprove different stories about the facts in a case. Now, the formal hybrid theory is a combination of an evidential theory and a causal theory.  ...

Formalising argumentative story-based analysis of evidence

F. J. Bex, H. Prakken, B. Verheij
2007 Proceedings of the 11th international conference on Artificial intelligence and law - ICAIL '07  
In the present paper, we provide a formalised version of a merged argumentative and story-based approach towards the analysis of evidence.  ...  More specifically, it will be clarified how the events in a case story that are considered to be proven abductively explain the otherwise unproven events of the case story.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) under project number and 634.000.429.  ...

Legal shifts in the process of proof

Floris Bex, Bart Verheij
2011 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law - ICAIL '11  
We present an extension of our previously proposed hybrid theory of reasoning with evidence, by making the connection with reasoning towards legal consequences.  ...  In this paper, we continue our research on a hybrid narrativeargumentative approach to evidential reasoning in the law by showing the interaction between factual reasoning and legal reasoning.  ...  Thus, the formal hybrid theory is a combination of a causal theory for building hypothetical stories about the facts, and an evidential theory for building arguments from the evidence to the facts.  ...

The Hybrid Theory of Stories and Arguments Applied to the Simonshaven Case

Floris J. Bex
2019 Topics in Cognitive Science  
This paper presents the hybrid theory of stories and arguments for reasoning with evidence in legal cases and applies this theory to the Simonshaven case.  ...  In the hybrid theory, alternative hypothetical stories about "what happened" in a case are constructed and discussed in a dialectical process of argument and counterargument.  ...  Integrating the story-based and argument-based approaches to rational proof into one theory provides the "best of both worlds."  ...

Burdens and Standards of Proof for Inference to the Best Explanation

Floris Bex, Douglas Walton
2010 Social Science Research Network  
As opposed to the usual argument-based model we use a hybrid model for Inference to the Best Explanation, which uses stories or explanations as well as arguments.  ...  In this paper, we provide a formal logical account of the burden of proof and proof standards in legal reasoning.  ...  The formal hybrid theory HT = (ET, CT) is a combination of a causal-abductive theory CT and an evidential argumentation theory ET.  ...

Solving a Murder Case by Asking Critical Questions: An Approach to Fact-Finding in Terms of Argumentation and Story Schemes

Floris Bex, Bart Verheij
2011 Argumentation: an international journal on reasoning  
We discuss critical questions about the evidential arguments adduced, about the narrative accounts of the facts considered, and about the way in which the arguments and narratives are connected in an analysis  ...  Our treatment shows how two different types of knowledge, represented as schemes, play a role in reasoning with evidence: argumentation schemes and story schemes.  ...  Fig. 2 2 An evidential argument Fig. 4 4 Stories and arguments as communicating vessels Fig. 5 5 A story with causal relations expressed as generalizations F.Bex, B.  ...

Burdens and standards of proof for inference to the best explanation: three case studies

F. Bex, D. Walton
2012 Law, Probability and Risk  
In this paper, we provide a formal logical model of evidential reasoning with proof standards and burdens of proof that enables us to evaluate evidential reasoning by comparing stories on either side of  ...  Inference to the best explanation, beyond reasonable doubt, evidence supporting a story, argumentation, shifting of burden of proof, critically questioning a story, plausible reasoning.  ...  The formal hybrid theory HT = (ET, CT) is thus a combination of a causal-abductive theory CT and an evidential argumentation theory ET.  ...

Applying Evidential Pluralism to the social sciences
