Elga’s rejection [5] of an infinitesimal solution to the zero-fit problem does not seem to appreciate the opportunities provided by the use of internal finitely additive probability measures. Indeed, internal laws of probability can be used to find a satisfactory infinitesimal answer to many zero-fit problems, not only to the one suggested by Elga, but also to Markov chain (that is, discrete and memory-less) models of reality. Moreover, the generalisation of likelihoods that Elga has in mind is… CONTINUE READING
