Indeed, we expect that foundations approaches like reason maintenance provide the most natural way of representing and updating entrenchment orderings, particularly when there may be multiple reasons for holding beliefs. In the second place, the practical utility of a revision method depends in part on how hard the user must work to represent specific information in the system's language. The complete orderings used to describe epistemic entrenchment and epistemic relevance offer limited flexibility in expressing the revision criteria that prove important in practice.
For example, in a deductively closed set of beliefs, every belief follows from all the rest, so the coherence approach seems lacking when it comes to providing reasonable explanations of why one believes something. But Gardenfors (1990) claims that this supposed advantage misconceives the power of the coherence approach, in that the coherence approach can also (in some cases) provide reasons for beliefs. Gardenfors observes that any coherence approach involves not only the set of beliefs but also something corresponding to the ordering of epistemic entrenchment, and that while the belief set itself need not determine reasons for beliefs, the entrenchment ordering can be examined to reveal these reasons.
Adding a monotonic reason with a nonempty inlist corresponds to adding an ordinary argument step, while adding a nonmonotonic reason lets RMS adopt a belief as an assumption. 2 Dependency-directed backtracking The operation of revision has no direct realization in changes to the set of reasons. It instead corresponds to the operation of the dependency-directed backtracking (DDB) system, which we have omitted from the formalization of RMS above. Unlike the operations of expansion and contraction, the operation of revision involves the notion of logical consistency in an essential way.
