Quantificational entitlements and relevantoid deontic logic

Lorenzo Peña, Francisco José Diez Ausin

Abstract


We develop a new system of deontic logic which implements a new treatment of quantified deontic and juridical propositions; chiefly those concerning positive rights, which are couched in terms of existential quantifiers: the right to have a dwelling, or a job, to enjoy medical care and so on. In order to achieve such a treatment, new axioms are put forward, but at the same time most of the usual axioms of standard systems of deon tic logic are dropped.
