|Abstract||The notion of preference occurs across many areas, including the philosophy of action, decision theory, optimality theory, and game theory. In these settings, individual preferences between worlds or actions can be used to predict behavior by rational agents. In a more abstract sense, the notion of preference also occurs in conditional logic, non-monotonic logic and belief revision theory, whose semantics involve an ordering of the possible worlds in terms of relative similarity or plausibility, or other preference-like relations.|
