A Logic of Abstract Argumentation

  title={A Logic of Abstract Argumentation},
  author={Guido Boella and Joris Hulstijn and Leon van der Torre},
In this paper we introduce a logic of abstract argumentation capturing Dung’s theory of abstract argumentation, based on connectives for attack and defend. We extend it to a modal logic of abstract argumentation to generalize Dung’s theory and define variants of it. Moreover, we use the logic to relate Dung’s theory of abstract argumentation to more traditional conditional and comparative formalisms, and we illustrate how to reason about arguments in meta-argumentation.
