  • We explore an approach to reasoning about causes via argumentation. We consider a causal model for a physical system, and we look for arguments about facts. Some arguments are meant to provide explanations of facts whereas some challenge these explanations and so on. At the root of argumentation here, are causal links {A 1,i¾?i¾?i¾?,A n } causes B and also ontological links c 1 is_a c 2. We introduce here a logical approach which provides a candidate explanation {A 1,i¾?i¾?i¾?,A n } explains {B… CONTINUE READING
