Burden of persuasion in argumentation: A meta-argumentation approach

Giuseppe Pisano  /  Giuseppe Pisano, Roberta Calegari, Andrea Omicini, Giovanni Sartor

This paper examines the view of the burden of persuasion as meta argument and elaborates the meta-argumentative aspects of a burden-of-persuasion semantics in argumentation. An argumentation framework composed of a meta level (dealing with the burden) and an object level (dealing with standard arguments) is proposed and discussed, and its equivalence with the burden-of-persuasion model in argumentation is proved. Finally, a computationally-feasible implementation of the meta-argumentation approach is presented.
