Samenvatting

Agenda Relevance is the first volume in the authors' omnibus investigation of

the logic of practical reasoning, under the collective title, A Practical Logic

of Cognitive Systems. In this highly original approach, practical reasoning is

identified as reasoning performed with comparatively few cognitive assets,

including resources such as information, time and computational capacity. Unlike

what is proposed in optimization models of human cognition, a practical reasoner

lacks perfect information, boundless time and unconstrained access to

computational complexity. The practical reasoner is therefore obliged to be a

cognitive economizer and to achieve his cognitive ends with considerable

efficiency. Accordingly, the practical reasoner avails himself of various

scarce-resource compensation strategies. He also possesses neurocognitive

traits that abet him in his reasoning tasks. Prominent among these is the

practical agent's striking (though not perfect) adeptness at evading irrelevant

information and staying on task. On the approach taken here, irrelevancies are

impediments to the attainment of cognitive ends. Thus, in its most basic sense,

relevant information is cognitively helpful information. Information can then be

said to be relevant for a practical reasoner to the extent that it advances or

closes some cognitive agenda of his. The book explores this idea with a

conceptual detail and nuance not seen the standard semantic, probabilistic and

pragmatic approaches to relevance; but wherever possible, the authors seek to

integrate alternative conceptions rather than reject them outright. A further

attraction of the agenda-relevance approach is the extent to which its principal

conceptual findings lend themselves to technically sophisticated re-expression

in formal models that marshal the resources of time and action logics and

label led deductive systems.


Agenda Relevance is necessary reading for researchers in logic, belief

dynamics, computer science, AI, psychology and neuroscience, linguistics,

argumentation theory, and legal reasoning and forensic science, and will repay

study by graduate students and senior undergraduates in these same fields.


Key features:


• relevance

• action and agendas

• practical reasoning

• belief dynamics

• non-classical logics

• labelled deductive systems
