Sub-Kripkean epistemic models I

The CUNY Graduate Center

Kripke models provide a versatile semantical tool in modal logic. It appears that when Kripkean methods were adopted in formal epistemology “as is” a key hidden assumption has been overlooked: the very truth condition of a knowledge assertion presupposes that the model itself is common knowledge among the agents. Naturally, this covers only well-controlled epistemic scenarios and leaves off scope numerous situations with partial/asymmetric knowledge. In this talk, we
1) offer a theory of sub-Kripkean epistemic models for unimodal logics;
2) discuss research directions for multi-agent cases.

Professor Artemov holds a Distinguished Professor position at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, in the Computer Science, Mathematics and Philosophy programs. He is also Professor of Mathematics at Moscow State University, the founder and the Head of the research laboratory Logical Problems in Computer Science. He conducts research in the areas of logic in computer science, mathematical logic and proof theory, knowledge representation and artificial intelligence, automated deduction and verification and optimal control and hybrid systems.
