About the Author

Christian Strasser obtained his PhD at the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science at Ghent University. His main research activities concern defeasible and normative reasoning. Having a background in both philosophy and computer science, he is interested in normative accounts of human reasoning as well as artificial intelligence.


"This is a book on the application of a class of logics, called adaptive logics, to a particular form of reasoning, in effect, of a defeasible kind. ... this book is clearly aimed at people interested in knowing the reaches of a formal logic formalism, from a philosophical viewpoint, without great concern for complexity and computational issues. And it may also serve a public with such computational concerns looking for an articulated starting point." (Marcelo Finger, Mathematical Reviews, April, 2016)
