[more ▼] A flexible infrastructure for normative reasoning is outlined. A small-scale demonstrator version of the envisioned system has been implemented in the proof assistant Isabelle/HOL by utilising the first authors universal logical reasoning approach based on shallow semantical embeddings in meta-logic HOL. The need for such a flexible reasoning infrastructure is motivated and illustrated with a contrary-to-duty example scenario selected from the General Data Protection Regulation.

[more ▼] A flexible infrastructure for the automation of deontic and normative reasoning is presented. Our motivation is the development, study and provision of legal and moral reasoning competencies in future intelligent machines. Since there is no consensus on the “best” deontic logic formalisms and since the answer may be application specific, a flexible infrastructure is proposed in which candidate logic formalisms can be varied, assessed and compared in experimental ethics application studies. Our work thus links the historically rich research areas of classical higher-order logic, deontic logics, normative reasoning and formal ethics.

[more ▼] Norm-based semantics to deontic logic typically come in an unconstrained and constrained version, where the unconstrained version comes with a proof system, and the constraints handle phenomena such as dilemmas, contrary-to-duty reasoning, uncertaintyanddefeasibility. Thisisanalogoustotheuseofrule-basedlanguagesin non-monotonic logic such as logic programming or default logic, but in contrast to the traditional modal framework. Traditionally, for example, speciﬁc modal deontic logics have been deﬁned that make dilemmas inconsistent, as well as other modal deontic logics representing dilemmas in a consistent way. This issue was raised recently in the input/output logic framework, and weaker unconstrained logics have been deﬁned handling phenomena like dilemmas and contrary-to-duty reasoning. In this paper we introduce a semantics and proof theory for a system with various desirable properties. We show that our new deontic logic satisﬁes a criterion posed several years ago by Broersen and van der Torre, allowing deontic detachment while preventing Prakken and Sergot’s pragmatic oddities as well as Sergot’s drowning problem.

This embedding enables the mechanisation and automation of reasoning tasks in input/output logic with off-the-shelf higher-order theorem provers and proof assistants. The key idea for the solution presented here results from the analysis of an inaccurate previous embedding attempt, which we will discuss as well.

[more ▼] There is a variety of ways to reason with normative systems. This partly reflects a variety of semantics developed for deontic logic, such as traditional semantics based on possible worlds, or alternative semantics based on algebraic methods, explicit norms or techniques from non-monotonic logic. This diversity raises the question how these reasoning methods are related, and which reasoning method should be chosen for a particular application. In this paper we discuss the use of examples, inference patterns, and more abstract properties. First, benchmark examples can be used to compare ways to reason with normative systems. We give an overview of several benchmark examples of normative reasoning and deontic logic: van Fraassen’s paradox, Forrester’s paradox, Prakken and Sergot’s cottage regulations, Jeffrey’s disarmament example, Chisholm’s paradox, Makinson’s Möbius strip, and Horty’s priority examples. Moreover, we distinguish various interpretations that can be given to these benchmark examples, such as consistent interpretations, dilemma interpretations, and violability interpretations. Second, inference patterns can be used to compare different ways to reason with normative systems. Instead of analysing the benchmark examples semantically, as it is usually done, in this paper we use inference patterns to analyse them at a higher level of abstraction. We discuss inference patterns reflecting typical logical properties such as strengthening of the antecedent or weakening of the consequent. Third, more abstract properties can be defined to compare different ways to reason with normative systems. To define these more abstract properties, we first present a formal framework around the notion of detachment. Some of the ten properties we introduce are derived from the inference patterns, but others are more abstract: factual detachment, violation detection, substitution, replacements of equivalents, implication, para-consistency, conjunction, factual monotony, norm monotony, and norm induction. We consider these ten properties as desirable for a reasoning method for normative systems.

[more ▼] The ideal worlds of a possible worlds semantics may satisfy both a primary obligation and an associated secondary obligation, for example the obligation to keep a promise and the obligation to apologise for not keeping it. This is known as the pragmatic oddity introduced by Prakken and Sergot. We argue that an adequate treatment of the pragmatic oddity within a norm-based semantics can be obtained, by not allowing primary and secondary obligations to aggregate, because they are obligations of a di erent kind. On the basis of this conceptual analysis, we introduce two logics, depending on the stance taken on the representation of normative con icts, and we present sound and complete proof systems for these logics. We then give a formal analysis, discuss extensions, and highlight various topics for further research.

[more ▼] This paper tackles an open problem posed by Åqvist. It is the problem of whether his dyadic deontic systems E and F are complete with respect to their intended Hanssonian preference- based semantics. It is known that there are two different ways of interpreting what it means for a world to be best or top-ranked among alternatives. This can be understood as saying that it is optimal among them, or maximal among them. First, it is established that, under either the maximality rule or the optimality rule, E is sound and complete with respect to the class of all preference models, the class of those in which the betterness relation is reflexive, and the class of those in which it is total. Next, an analogous result is shown to hold for F. That is, it is established that, under either rule, F is sound and complete with respect to the class of preference models in which the betterness relation is limited, the class of those in which it is limited and reflexive, and the class of those in which it is limited and total.

[more ▼] Makinson and van der Torre [13] introduce a number of input/output (I/O) logics to reason about conditional norms. The key idea is to make obligations relative to a given set of conditional norms. The meaning of the normative concepts is, then, given in terms of a set of procedures yielding outputs for inputs. Using the same methodology, Stolpe[19,20] has developed some more I/O logics to include systems without the rule of weakening of the output (or principle of inheritance). We extend Stolpe’s account in two directions. First, we show how to make it support reasoning by cases−a common form of reasoning. Second, we show how to inject a new (as we call it, “aggregative”) form of cumulative transitivity, which we think is more suitable for normative reasoning. The main outcomes of the paper are soundness and completeness theorems for the proposed systems with respect to their intended semantics.
