Title
Specificity by default
Author
Abstract
The concept of prioritization, either implicitly or explicitly, has been generally recognized as a tool to eliminate spurious extensions. Implicit priority information can be used when specificity is the preference criterion by means of which extensions are selected. Sometimes, it is necessary to take other preference criteria into account, and explicit means of expressing priorities are required. Here we present an argument based approach to nonmonotonic reasoning, in which implicit and explicit priorities are combined. The idea is that arguments are ranked according to a preference relation based on implicit specificity information. Additional explicit priorities can be supplied by the user, so that specificity can be considered as the preference criterion by default.
