A Model-Theoretic Semantics for Two-Sided Argumentation

Last modified: 2012-05-16


Argumentation is a natural meaning of reasoning in the daily life, and has also become a highly interested topic of knowledge representation in the past few years. In this paper, we will use the phrase "two-sided argumentation" for a type of formalization for our real world debate: an issue with a pro-side supports it and a con-side opposes it. Then, we will point out that, when we use the term "argumentation," we in fact mean a binary concept: a method of reasoning, and a type of negotiation. For both case, we will consider the semantics: argumentative models for the former, argumentation games for the latter. We will also give out some results about the relationship between them.
