Diversity of agents is investigated in the context of standard epistemic logic, dynamic information update, and belief revision. We provide a systematic discussion of different sources of diversities, such as introspection ability, powers of observation, memory capacity, and revision policies. In each case, we show how this diversity can be encoded in a logical system allowing for individual variation among rational agents. We conclude by raising some general issues concerning this view of a logic as a system for encoding a society of diverse agents and their interaction.
