Abstract

Adaptive Logics (ALs) are a viable and useful formal tool to handle various issues in deontic logic. In this paper, we motivate, explain, illustrate, and discuss the use of ALs in deontic logic. Published work on deontic ALs focusses mainly on conflicttolerant deontic logics (logics that can accommodate conflicting obligations) and – to a lesser extent – on problems concerning factual and deontic detachment. So does the present paper. Near the end of the paper, however, we also indicate some of the possibilities that the adaptive logic framework creates for tackling other types of problems within deontic logic.
