deontic logic ethical dilemmas formal applied ethics
The project has two main aims. The first is to lay the conceptual framework for a formal account that allows for the explication and evaluation of actual reasoning processes involving ethical dilemma’s. The second aim is to design non-classical modal logics within this framework and to apply them to some well-chosen cases from the domain of medical ethics.
