Limitations of Skeptical Default Reasoning
Jens Doerpmund
Abstract:
Poole has shown that nonmonotonic logics do not handle the lottery paradox correctly. In this paper we will show that Pollock's theory of defeasible reasoning fails for the same reason: defeasible reasoning is incompatible with the skeptical notion of derivability.
Keywords: Nonmonotonic reasoning, lottery paradox.
