Reasoning about obligations: defeasibility in preference-based deontic logic (bibtex)
by L.W.N. Torre, L. Torre
Abstract:
This thesis develops several preference-based deontic logics, and a classification of several types of defeasibility in preference-based deontic logic. The classification discriminates between exceptions and violations. For example, consider the obligation that normally, you ought to keep your promises, and the fact that you do not keep your promise. Is this an exception of the normality claim, or is it a violation of the obligation to keep your promise? The formal classification avoids this kind of confusion.
