Dialectical Explanations in Defeasible Argumentation
Abstract. This work addresses the problem of providing explanation capabilities to an argumentation system. Explanation in defeasible argumentation is an important, and yet undeveloped field in the area. Therefore, we move in this direction by defining a concrete argument system with explanation facilities. We consider the structures that provide information on the warrant status of a literal. Our focus is put on argumentation systems based on a dialectical proof procedure, therefore we study dialectical explanations. Although arguments represent a form of explanation for a literal, we study the complete set of dialectical trees that justifies the warrant status of a literal, since this set has proved to be a useful tool to comprehend, analyze, develop, and debug argumentation systems.
