Example text

This connection between revision semantics and game theory has been observed by Chapuis who gives a sketch of a general theory of rationality in games based on revision analyses in his [Ch03]. We see Chapuis’ work as an interesting approach compatible with the spirit of the analysis of belief update discussed in § 5, and would like to see more similar approaches to revision in various fields of formal modelling.

This means that the individuals in the class a are bound to be members of class b as well by virtue of their possessing all the qualities possessed jointly by members of b. In philosophical parlance one would say that particulars belonging to the universal a also belongs to the universal b. 2 The Case of Individuals and Substances In ontologies individuals (particulars) tend to be of less interest than the classes – with possible exception of distinguished particulars. These latter may, however, be accorded special treatment as singleton classes.

The inequations are handy in particular for the specification of ontologies, cf. the above isa(a,b), which becomes a ≤ b. Moreover, the Peirce product serves to provide attribution with properties, which is crucial in ascribing properties to classes in ontologies as to be discussed. The form of the language places it in the algebraic logical tradition dating back to Boole via Tarski (relation-algebraic logic) and Peirce. However, in the perspective of modern algebraic logic it may rather be seen as an extension of lattice algebras or Boolean algebras with relation algebraic operations as explicated in [7].
