Possible World Semantics for Defeasible Deontic Logic [chapter]

Guido Governatori, Antonino Rotolo, Erica Calardo
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While several logic programming, operational and argumentation semantics have been provided for defeasible logics, possible world semantics for (modal) defeasible logics remained elusive.  ...  Section 4 discusses how to interpret Defeasible Multi-modal Logic in neighbourhood semantics and identifies one open problem. 2 Defeasible Deontic Logic: An Informal Presentation DL has three basic kinds  ...  Defeasible Multi-modal Logic In this section we present a general multi-modal logical framework, called Defeasible Multi-modal Logic, which covers all existing variants of Defeasible Deontic Logic.  ...

The Many Faces of Defeasibility in Defeasible Deontic Logic [chapter]

Leendert W. N. van der Torre, Yao-Hua Tan
1997 Defeasible Deontic Logic  
Moreover, we introduced several preference-based semantics for deontic logics to analyze the different types of defeasibility.  ...  To make our analysis as general as possible, we assume as little as possible about the deontic logic we use.  ...

An Update Semantics for Defeasible Obligations [article]

Leendert van der Torre, Yao-Hua Tan
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The deontic logic DUS is a Deontic Update Semantics for prescriptive obligations based on the update semantics of Veltman.  ...  In this paper prescriptive defeasible obligations are formalized in update semantics and the diagnostic problem of defeasible deontic logic is discussed.  ...  In the defeasible deontic logic, we test whether the best most normal a A /3 worlds are bet ter than the best most normal ..,a A /3 worlds.  ...

The RatioLog Project: Rational Extensions of Logical Reasoning

Ulrich Furbach, Claudia Schon, Frieder Stolzenburg, Karl-Heinz Weis, Claus-Peter Wirth
2015 Künstliche Intelligenz  
In this context, we work toward the application of techniques from human reasoning: We employ defeasible reasoning to compare the answers w.r.t. specificity, deontic logic, normative reasoning, and model  ...  Moreover, we use integrated case-based reasoning and machine learning techniques on the basis of the semantic structure of the questions and answer candidates to learn giving the right answers.  ...  Within the RatioLog project both defeasible logic and deontic logic are used. There are similarities between defeasible logic and deontic logic.  ...

A Preference-Based Approach to Defeasible Deontic Inference

James Delgrande
2020 Proceedings of the Seventeenth International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning  
In this paper we present an approach to defeasible deontic inference.  ...  The approach yields desirable and intuitive results, including for the various "paradoxes" of deontic reasoning.  ...  for their pertinent comments.  ...

Contextual Deontic Logic [chapter]

Leendert W. N. van der Torre, Yao-Hua Tan
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show how contextual obligations can be used to solve certain aspects of contrary-to-duty paradoxes of dyadic deontic logic.  ...  In this article we propose contextual deontic logic (CDL). Contextual obligations are written as , and are to be read as ' should be the case if is the case, unless is the case'.  ...  In future research, we will investigate whether contextual deontic logic proposed here can be applied to model qualitative decision theory, and which extensions are needed (see [TvdT96] for possible  ...

A Modal Defeasible Reasoner of Deontic Logic for the Semantic Web

Efstratios Kontopoulos, Nick Bassiliades, Guido Governatori, Grigoris Antoniou
2011 International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS)  
Defeasible and modal logics, in general, and, particularly, deontic logic can assist by providing means for modeling agent communities, where each agent is characterized by its own cognitive profile and  ...  Defeasible logic is a non-monotonic formalism that deals with incomplete and conflicting information, while modal logic deals with the concepts of necessity and possibility.  ...  Modal and Deontic Logic Modal logic deals with the notions of possibility ("it is possible that") and necessity ("it is necessary that").  ...

On the Equivalence of Defeasible Deontic Logic and Temporal Defeasible Logic [chapter]

Marc Allaire, Guido Governatori
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we formally prove that compliance results derived from temporal defeasible logic are equivalent to the ones obtained in the standard defeasible deontic logic.  ...  Being able to add time to standard deontic logic will allow for a better and more elegant representation of obligations and improvement in computational efficiency.  ...  The use of Temporal Defeasible Deontic Logic allows us to use the same logic to model norms, semantic annotations and to check whether a process is compliant.  ...

Contrary-to-duty obligations

A discussion of possible adjustments, including an alternative treatment in terms of a preference-based semantics, reveals difficulties that are reminiscent of problems in defeasible reasoning and intensional  ...  This framework is presented initially as an extension of Standard Deontic Logic (SDL), a normal modal logic of type KD, and is illustrated by application to a series of examples.  ...  The authors wish to thank Leon van der Torre for pointing out the problem identified in section 7 and Andrew Jones for many illuminating discussions and for suggesting the relevance of [Lewis 74].  ...
