Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a title on the foundations of defeasible logic, which explores the formal properties of everyday reasoning patterns whereby people jump to conclusions, reserving the right to retract them in the light of further information. Although technical in nature the book contains sections that outline basic issues by means of intuitive and simple examples. This book is primarily targeted at philosophers interested in the foundations of defeasible logic, logicians, and specialists in artificial intelligence and theoretical computer science.

Book News Annotation:

Defeasible logic, explains Antonelli (logic and philosophy of science, U. of California-Irvine), is the kind people use most of the time in their daily lives to reach tentative conclusions based on partial information that can be revised later as more information becomes available. The big problem with it is that is difficult to capture formally, but he proposes an approach that is in part inspired by parallel developments in philosophical logic, particularly in the formal theory of truth.
