Many-valued judgment aggregation: characteriing the possibility/impossibility boundary for an important class of agendas
AbstractA general model of judgment aggregation is presented in which judgments on propositions are not binary but come in degrees. The primitives of the model are a set of propositions, an entailment relation, and a “triangular norm” which establishes a lower bound on the degree to which a proposition is true whenever it is entailed by a set of propositions. For an important class of agendas, we identify a necessary and sufficient condition for judgment aggregation to be free from veto power. This condition says that the triangular norm used to establish the lower bound must contain a zero divisor.
