  • KurzfassungAbstract
    In this paper we present a new approach to evaluate indicative conditionals with respect to some background information specified by a logic program. Because the weak completion of a logic program admits a least model under the three-valued Lukasiewicz semantics and this semantics has been successfully applied to other human reasoning tasks, conditionals are evaluated under these least L-models. If such a model maps the condition of a conditional to unknown, then abduction and revision are applied in order to satisfy the condition. Different strategies in applying abduction and revision might lead to different evaluations of a given conditional. Based on these findings we outline an experiment to better understand how humans handle those cases.
