Limitations of Skeptical Default Reasoning
Jens Doerpmund
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.
