TRANSITIVITY AND INTRANSITIVITY IN EVIDENTIAL SUPPORT: SOME FURTHER RESULTS

  • WILLIAM ROCHE (a1)
Abstract

Igor Douven establishes several new intransitivity results concerning evidential support. I add to Douven’s very instructive discussion by establishing two further intransitivity results and a transitivity result.
