Violation Contexts and Deontic Independence (bibtex)
by Leendert W. N. van der Torre
Abstract:
In this paper we discuss the role of context and independence in normative reasoning. First, deontic operators - obligations, prohibitions, permissions - referring to the ideal context may conflict with operators referring to a violation (or contrary-to-duty) context. Second, deontic independence is a powerful concept to derive deontic operators from such operators of other violation contexts. These two concepts are used to determine how to proceed once a norm has been violated, a key issue of deontic logic applications in computer science. We also show how violation contexts and deontic independence can be used to give a new analysis of several notorious paradoxes of deontic logic.
