An analysis of disposition concepts by the Ramsey test

- PhilosophySynthese
- 2020

This is an essay on the understanding of disposition concepts, which exploits the Ramsey test semantics of conditionals for a refined conditional analysis of dispositions. I will show that this…

Measuring Ranks via the Complete Laws of Iterated Contraction

- MathematicsFormal Models of Belief Change in Rational Agents
- 2007

The paper shows how to reconstruct a ranking function from its iterated contraction behavior uniquely up to multiplicative constant and thus how to measure ranks on a ratio scale by giving a complete axiomatization of that behavior.

Ordinal and Probabilistic Representations of Acceptance

- PhilosophyJ. Artif. Intell. Res.
- 2004

It is shown that the sets of accepted belief of an agent can always be derived from a family of possibility rankings of states, and considers the acceptance relation as a primitive object from which belief sets are derived in various contexts.

A Ramsey Test Analysis of Causation for Causal Models

- PhilosophyThe British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
- 2021

We aim to devise a Ramsey test analysis of actual causation. Our method is to define a strengthened Ramsey test for causal models. Unlike the accounts of Halpern and Pearl ([2005]) and Halpern…

Causation in terms of production

- PhilosophyPhilosophical Studies
- 2019

In this paper, we analyse actual causation in terms of production . The latter concept is made precise by a strengthened Ramsey Test semantics of conditionals: $$A \gg C$$ A ≫ C iff, after suspending…

On Belief Promotion

- MathematicsKR
- 2018

A new class of belief change operators, named promotion operators, are introduced, which are to enhance the acceptation of a formula representing a new piece of information and provide a representation theorem in terms of minimal change.

On the Ramsey Test Analysis of ‘Because’

- PhilosophyErkenntnis
- 2018

The well-known formal semantics of conditionals due to Stalnaker (in: Rescher (ed) Studies in logical theory, Blackwell, Oxford, 1968), Lewis (Counterfactuals, Blackwell, Oxford, 1973a), and…

On Iterated Contraction: Syntactic Characterization, Representation Theorem and Limitations of the Levi Identity

- MathematicsSUM
- 2017

This paper provides pure syntactical postulates for iterated contraction in the epistemic state framework, that is, the postulates are expressed only in terms of the contraction operator, and establishes a representation theorem for these operators.

The Strength of Desires: A Logical Approach

- PhilosophyMinds and Machines
- 2017

A formal approach to reasoning about desires is proposed, understood as logical propositions which the authors would be pleased to make true, also acknowledging the fact that desire is a matter of degree.
