Changes of Mind

An Essay on Rational Belief Revision

Neil Tennant

  • Uniquely presents a computationally implementable and implemented theory that works
  • Interdisciplinary approach bringing together ideas, issues and methods from epistemology, mathematical logic, complexity theory and Prolog programming
  • The theory is purposely limited to the simplest and most central features of belief systems and their revisions
  • Accessible to both non-specialists with the simple approach, and specialists with the possibilities provided in the extension of the theory
