Åqvist's Dyadic Deontic Logic E in HOL

EasyChair Preprint no. 554

15 pagesPublished: October 3, 2018

Abstract

We devise a shallow semantical embedding of Åqvist's dyadic deontic logic E in classical higher-order logic. This embedding is encoded in Isabelle/HOL, which turns this system into a proof assistant for deontic logic reasoning. The experiments with this environment provide evidence that this logic \textit{implementation} fruitfully enables interactive and automated reasoning at the meta-level and the object-level.

Keyphrases: automated reasoning, classical higher-order logic, Dyadic deontic logic E, Preference Models, semantic embedding
