  1. How and why I arrived at a topsy-turvy account of Even-Ifs

    How and why I arrived at a topsy-turvy account of Even-Ifs

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    Most philosophers of logic reject the prima facie plausible view that Even-If conditionals entail their consequents, and settle instead for accounts on which Even-Ifs entail the corresponding If-conditionals. In this paper, I provide fresh motivation for the rejected, consequent-entailing, view...

    Descriptions and Presuppositions: Strawson vs. Russell

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    A Russellian theory of (defmite) descriptions takes an utterance of the form ‘The F is G’ to express a purely general proposition that affirms the existence of a (contextually) unique F: there is exactly one F [which is C] and...

    A puzzle about conditionals

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    This paper examines a neglected puzzle about conditionals: namely, the fact that each of a pair of conditionals with incompatible consequents, [A>C] and [B>C*], may be properly affirmable in circumstances when one does not believe, and is not entitled to...

    Hempel's paradox of the ravens, and his take on it, are meant to be understood as being restricted to situations where we have no additional background information. According to him, in the absence of any such information, observations of FGs...

    On preferential Sylow fuzzy subgroups

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    In this paper, for a prime p, we propose some plausible definitions for the notion of Sylow fuzzy p-subgroup of a finite group. We derive a number of results for finite fuzzy groups using one of the proposed definitions. We...
