  1. Preferential Accessibility and Preferred Worlds.Katarina Britz & Ivan Varzinczak - 2018 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 27 (2):133-155.
    Modal accounts of normality in non-monotonic reasoning traditionally have an underlying semantics based on a notion of preference amongst worlds. In this paper, we motivate and investigate an alternative semantics, based on ordered accessibility relations in Kripke frames. The underlying intuition is that some world tuples may be seen as more normal, while others may be seen as more exceptional. We show that this delivers an elegant and intuitive semantic construction, which gives a new perspective on defeasible necessity. Technically, the (...)

  • From KLM-Style Conditionals to Defeasible Modalities, and Back.Katarina Britz & Ivan Varzinczak - 2018 - Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics 28 (1):92-121.
    We investigate an aspect of defeasibility that has somewhat been overlooked by the non-monotonic reasoning community, namely that of defeasible modes of reasoning. These aim to formalise defeasibility of the traditional notion of necessity in modal logic, in particular of its different readings as action, knowledge and others in specific contexts, rather than defeasibility of conditional forms. Building on an extension of the preferential approach to modal logics, we introduce new modal osperators with which to formalise the notion of defeasible (...)
