BELIEF REVISION, PROBABILISM, AND LOGIC CHOICE

  • EDWIN MARES (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

This paper presents a probabilist paraconsistent theory of belief revision. This theory is based on a very general theory of probability, that fits with a wide range of classical and nonclassical logics. The theory incorporates a version of Jeffrey conditionalisation as its method of updating. A Dutch book argument is given, and the theory is applied to the problem of choosing a logical system.
