Actions & norms in deontic logic

20 Sep 2023
Milan, Italy

Dear colleagues,

The use of formal methods in the analysis and representation of normative 
reasoning has faced plenty of interesting challenges over the last few 
decades, ranging from theoretical puzzles to automation endeavours. The 
workshop "Actions and norms in deontic logic", hosted by the Department of 
Philosophy of the Catholic University of Milan on 20 September 2023, aims 
at offering fresh insights into recent developments in the area and open 
directions of research.

Workshop attendance is free. To register for the workshop, please write in 
advance to any of the two organizers:
