Anchored narratives in reasoning about evidence

Floris Bex, Henry Prakken & Bart Verheij

This paper concerns the reasoning with stories, evidence and generalisations in a legal context. We will make some notions from the existing Anchored Narratives theory more clear by making use of two formal techniques from AI, namely causal-abductive reasoning and default-style argumentation. We will propose a combination of these two formalisms which solves some of the problems of the causal-abductive approach.
