Abstract This book deals with a well-known problem in artificial intelligence, namely commonsense reasoning. The author tackles this problem from the standpoint of classical AI, building on theories of nonmonotonic reasoning developed by McCarthy, McDermott, Poole, Reiter, and Allen. However, the proposals given in this book differ from traditional approaches in two respects: (1) a novel approach to integrating formal models of commonsense reasoning with traditional knowledge representation formalisms, such as frames and scripts is suggested, and (2) a "typicality logic" is described, and the claim is made that default logic formalisms that have been proposed in the literature are "specializations" of the author's typicality logic.
