Part 1 offers a merely system-theoretic explication of trust and inference. half 2 provides a reliabilist conception of justification for inference, with a qualitative thought of reliability being hired. half three recollects and extends a variety of platforms of deductive and nonmonotonic good judgment and thereby explains the semantics of absolute and excessive reliability. partially four it really is confirmed that qualitative neural networks may be able to draw justified deductive and nonmonotonic inferences at the foundation of allotted representations. this can be derived from a soundness/completeness theorem in regards to cognitive semantics of nonmonotonic reasoning. The appendix extends the idea either logically and ontologically, and relates it to A. Goldman's reliability account of justified trust.
