In this work, we investigate the use of Dynamic Preference Logic to encode BDI mental attitudes. Further, exploring this codification and the representation of preferences over possible worlds by preferences over propositional formulas, here called priority graphs, we comment on how to interpret BDI agent programs in this logic. Also, using the connection between dynamic operations defined over preference models and their encoding as transformations on priority graphs, we show how our logic can
more » ... be used not only to reason about agent programs, but as a tool to specify reasoning mechanisms to guarantee certain properties in the theory of rationality for the programming language.
