Normative systems and their revision: an algebraic approach

Lindahl, Lars LU and Odelstad, Jan (2003) In Artificial Intelligence and Law 11. p.81-104
Abstract
The paper discusses normative systems and their revision within an algebraic framework. If a system is logically well-formed, certain norms, called connecting norms, determine the system as a whole. It is maintained that, if the system is well-formed, a relation at least as low as determines a lattice or quasi-lattice of its connecting norms. The ideas are presented mainly in the form of comments on a legal example concerning acquisition of movable property by extinction of another person's previous rights.
