Response-dependence and Conditional Fallacy Problems


ISBN: 978-3-88405-563-2

Price: €11.50 (including 19 % tax)


Response-dependence theses seem vulnerable to conditional fallacy problems like those that afflict the simple conditional analysis of dispositions. This paper is an attempt to clear response-dependence theses of these charges. I discuss what the counterexamples show, and how they might be resisted. I consider three suggested solutions from the literature on response-dependence: Johnston’s construal of response-dependence theses in explicitly dispositional terms, Blackburn’s ‘elasticity’ approach, and Wright’s provisional equations. I develop a fourth strategy based on relativisation of the ‘favourable conditions’ that play a central role in response-dependence theses. I also table, but do not discuss in detail, a fifth suggestion inspired by Lewis’s revised conditional analysis of dispositions. I conclude that the resources can be found to defend response-dependence theses against conditional fallacy problems.
