Some Considerations on Conditional Chances

  title={Some Considerations on Conditional Chances},
  author={Paul Humphreys},
Four interpretations of single-case conditional propensities are described and it is shown that for each a version of what has been called ‘Humphreys’ Paradox’ remains, despite the clarifying work of Gillies, McCurdy and Miller. This entails that propensities cannot be a satisfactory interpretation of standard probability theory.
