Human inference can be used to test the inference patterns a reliable nonmonotonic consequence should satisfy, because it appears to be nonmonotonic, it is adaptive and it generally achieves efficiency. In this study, an experiment is conducted to investigate whether human inference tends to be consistent with rationality postulates (System P plus Rational… CONTINUE READING
