This proposal presents an approach to explanation that incorporates the paradigms of belief revision and abduction. We present an algorithm that combines these techniques and a system called BRACE that is a preliminary implementation of this algorithm. We show the applicability of the BRACE approach to a wide range of domains including scientific discovery, device diagnosis and plan recognition. Finally, we describe our proposals for a new implementation, new application domains for our system and extensions to this approach.
