Abstract:

Israels remarks about non-monotonic logic are used as a springboard for studying some thoughts on defeasible reasoning among contemporary philosophers of science thoughts that A.I. workers have so far neglected. Israels criticisms, that A.I. has misconceived rules of belief fixation and revision, and his constructive comment, that we should look to the philosophers of science for understanding and inspiration, are the two central themes.
