Download Introduction to deontic logic and the theory of normative systems

Deontic logic is a branch of logic that investigates normative concepts, systems of norms and normative reasoning. The formal languages of deontic logic include normative concepts that correspond to natural language notions such as ought, obligatory, permissible, forbidden and optional.

The present book is an introduction to this branch of by: 9. The Handbook of Deontic Logic and Normative Systems presents a detailed overview of the main lines of research on contemporary deontic logic and related topics. Although building on decades of previous work in the field, it is the first collection to take into account the significant changes in the landscape of deontic logic that have occurred in the past twenty years.

Still, for instance in Gabbay et al.'s " Handbook of Deontic Logic and Normative Systems " [10], the classical modal logic framework is mainly confined to the historical chapter. Another chapter presents the alternatives to the modal framework, and three chapters discuss concrete approaches.

Lennart Åqvist - - Bibliopolis. Deontic Logic: An Introduction. Abstract. The word ‘deontic’ is derived from the Greek word ‘δεóυτως’, which may be translated ‘as it should be’ or ‘duly’.

Bentham uses ‘deontology’ for “the science of morality”, and Ernst Mally [30] was the first to use the term — in the form Deontik — to refer to logical study of the normative use of language. However, virtually everyone working in this area would see systems designed to model the logical contributions of these notions as part of deontic logic proper.

As a branch of symbolic logic, deontic logic is of theoretical interest for some of the same reasons that modal logic is of theoretical interest.

Papers for these workshops might address such general themes as the dev- opment of formal systems of deontic logic and related areas of logic, such as logics of action and agency, or the formal analysis of all sorts of normative concepts, such as the notions of rule, role, regulation, authority, power, rights, respon- bility, etc., or the.

Each part is divided into chapters. Part I brings the following units: 1. The Language of Logic and the Possibility of Deontic Logic; 2. Paradoxes and Shortcomings of Logic; : Jan Woleński. The book takes readers from the most basic systems of modal propositional logic right up to systems of modal predicate with identity.

It covers both technical developments such as completeness and incompleteness, and finite and infinite models, and their philosophical applications, especially in the area of modal predicate logic.

Deontic logic is a very well researched branch of mathematical logic and• philosophy. Various kinds of deontic logics are discussed for different application domains like argumentation theory, legal reasoning, and acts in multi-agent systems [].Recently there also is growing interest in modelling human reasoning and testing the models with psychological findings.

In moral philosophy, deontological ethics or deontology is the normative ethical theory that the morality of an action should be based on whether that action itself is right or wrong under a series of rules, rather than based on the consequences of the action.

It is sometimes described as duty- obligation- or rule-based ethics. Deontological ethics is commonly contrasted to consequentialism, virtue ethics, and. TY - CHAP.

This chapter shows the relevance and fruitfulness of Georg Henrik von Wright’s work for legal philosophy. It also illustrates what sort of transformation or adaptation is needed in order to render his elucidations more suitable to legal discourse. The analysis focuses on problems of the theory of norms and deontic logic.

and/or rewards. In our approach, we use the deontic logic programs to represent normative systems. Definition 2. A normative system N is a deontic logic program. In order to allow agents and institutions to reason about a normative system, it is very important that it has a rigorous formal semantics which, at the same time, should be clean.This chapter presents an introduction to the most standard monadic systems of deontic logic.

Deontic logic has been strongly influenced by ideas in modal logic. Analogies with alethic modal notions and deontic notions were noticed as far back as the fourteenth century, where one might say that the rudiments of modern deontic logic began.Alternatively, a deontic logic is a formal system that attempts to capture the essential logical features of these concepts.

Typically, a deontic logic uses OA to mean it is obligatory that A, (or it ought to be (the case) that A), and PA to mean it is permitted (or permissible) that A.
