Qualified Ramifications

Michael Thielscher

We consider the problem of ramifications, i.e., indirect effects of actions, having exceptions. It is argued that straightforward minimization of abnormality is insufficient in this context. Taking a recent causality-based solution to the plain Ramification Problem as starting point, we develop an action theory that is shown to successfully address this amalgamation of Ramification and Qualification Problem.
