  • Future A.I. of legal reasoning will have to take account of non formal arguments. They will work without having a strict demonstration of propositions proper to formal logic. This happens because, usually, the lawyer-orator can only work on persuasion of the audience to adhere each successive element of those arguments.


    Lawyers must confess that their job is not 100% Logical: it uses, according to Chailm Perelman, only some soft argument techniques, which Perelman defined as non-formal arguments. They are mainly concerned with the adherence of an audience, so, without having a strict demonstration of propositions proper to formal logic, the lawyer-orator can only work on persuasion of the audience to adhere each successive element of an argument. I agree with Perelman that the value of precedents pertains to a non orthogonal space of discourse, where premises are uncertain, asymmetric and polarized to a certain audience, so that the language of law is, therefore, full of persuasion and of fuzziness.
