Ground Nonmonotonic Modal Logics - Dipartimento di Informatica e

In particular, Schwarz  proposed a semantics for McDermott and Doyle’s logics. However, the notion of minimal knowledge underlying the above cited works is stronger ...

A Qualitative Theory of Dynamic Interactive Belief Revision

Towards an Epistemic Logic of Grounded Belief
... an ideal agent cannot posses knowledge of falsity. For any situation it seems strange to say that
one may know a falsehood in that situation. The principle that in any situation if one knows some
proposition φ, then φ is true goes back to at least Plato (1999a) and possibly Parmenides. However,

On Linear Inference

judgments we already know. We can then read the rule above as

The Nyāya Sūtras are an ancient Indian text of philosophy composed by Akṣapāda Gautama (also Gotama; c. 2nd century CE). The sutras contain five chapters, each with two sections. The core of the text dates to roughly 150 CE, although there are significant later interpolations.The Nyaya is sometimes called Tarka-Vidyā, the science of debate, Vāda-Vidyā, the science of discussion. Tarka is the special feature of the Nyāya. Thus some of its features and categories are better understood from that perspective. Gautama is sometimes given the honorific titles ""Akṣapāda"" (probably in the sense ""having his eyes fixed in abstraction on his feet"") and ""Dīrghatapas"" (""performing long penance""). He is also sometimes accorded the religious titles ""Ṛṣi"" or ""Maharṣi"".In the Nyāya Sutras Gautama developed and extended the Vaiśeṣika epistemological and metaphysical system through 528 aphorisms. Later commentaries expanded, expounded, and critically discussed Gautama's work, the first being by Vātsyāyana (c.450–500 CE), followed by the Nyāyavārttika of Uddyotakāra (c. 6th–7th century), Vācaspati Miśra's Tātparyatīkā (9th century), Udayana's Tātparyapariśuddhi (10th century), and Jayanta's Nyāyamañjarī (10th century).
