What is input/output logic? (bibtex)

by D. Makinson, L. van der Torre

Abstract:

We explain the raison d'etre and basic ideas of input/output logic, sketching the central elements with pointers to other publications for detailed developments. The motivation comes from the logic of norms. Unconstrained input/output operations are straightforward to define, with relatively simple behaviour, but ignore the subtleties of contrary-to-duty situations. To deal with these more sensitively, we constrain input/output operations by means of consistency conditions, expressed in the concept of an outfamily. However, this is a more complex affair, with difficult choices between alternative options.
