The growing interest for Multi-Agent Systems considered as an interesting cognitive model is discussed. This arises from the need to put abstract reasoning in the context of a concrete environment, and to use logic not only to solve problems in a virtual world, but in real arena The multi-agent metaphor of intelligent individuals that are situated into dynamic and unpredictable environments and that can interact with each other by updating their beliefs can be regarded as the basis for a symbolic model of cognition. The relationship between the internal reasoning of agents and the outer world, the semantics of a system composed of agents that reason on a private knowledge, and the implementation of a BDI architecture were analyzed.
