Ranking-based semantics for argumentation frameworks


An argumentation system consists of a set of interacting arguments and a semantics for evaluating them. This paper proposes a new family of semantics which rank-orders arguments from the most acceptable to the weakest one(s). The new semantics enjoy two other main features: i) an attack weakens its target but does not kill it, ii) the number of attackers has a great impact on the acceptability of an argument.We start by proposing a set of rational postulates that such semantics could satisfy, then construct various semantics that enjoy them.
