Genuine Counterexamples to the Simple Conditional Analysis of Disposition: A Reply to Choi
- 91 Downloads
Choi (Philosophia, 38(3), 2010) argues that my counterexamples in Lee (Philosophia, 38(3), 2010) to the simple conditional analysis of disposition ascription are “bogus” counterexamples. In this paper, I argue that Choi’s arguments are not satisfactory and that my examples are genuine counterexamples.
