A Computational Logic Approach to the Suppression Task

Abstract

A novel approach to human conditional reasoning based on the three-valued Łukasiewicz logic is presented. We will demonstrate that the Łukasiewicz logic overcomes problems the so-far proposed Fitting logic has in reasoning with the suppression task. While adequately solving the suppression task, the approach gives rise to a number of open questions concerning the use of Łukasiewicz logic, unique fixed points, completion versus weak completion, explanations, negation, and sceptical versus credulous approaches in human reasoning.
