The AGM paradigm for belief revision provides a very elegant and
powerful framework to reason about idealized agents. The paradigm
assumes that the modelled agent is a perfect reasoner with infinite
memory. In this paper we propose a framework to reason about non­
ideal agents that generalizes the AGM paradigm.
We first introduce a structure to represent an agent's belief states
that distinguishes different status of beliefs according to whether they
are explicitly represented or not, whether they are currently active and
whether they are fully accepted or provisional. Then we define a set of
basic operations that change the status of beliefs and show how these
operations can be used to model agents with different capacities. We
also show how different operations of belief change described in the
literature can be seen as special cases of our theory.
