Modeling legal argumentation is one of the most important research in AI and Law, and a lot of models have been proposed. However, most research has not treated value judgement and debate. In this paper, we introduce a legal reasoning model which covers various aspects of legalreasoning such as making argument, selecting argument and debate.Furthermore, we present how criminal law is described and reasoned inthis model.
comes from the Greek o o ( technologia ), which in turn derives from ( technê ), meaning art or technique, and o ( logos ). Modern technology has reached its present advanced level thanks to the pursuit of ever greater efficiency. In other words, technology has achieved its present level of development by changing from the quest for techniques grounded in o to a form of engineering that is devoid of o and merely pursues efficiency. We must not overlook (...) the great danger in this sort of technology. Technology advancing radically and transformed into engineering devoid of o cannot perceive its raison dêtre and the meaning of its tasks from the perspective of the overall quest for knowledge; as a result, the process of technological development hurtles ahead blindly without a normal sense of balance. The effects on human society are immense. At this juncture we must return to the spirit of Greek o o and urgently rebuild a technology grounded in awareness of o as the wellspring of all knowledge. This is a task that we must address without delay in order to avoid the destruction of humankind. Key Words: applied ethics logos technologia wellspring of technology. (shrink)
