Probability meeting

2pm on Wednesday 2 March, in Coombs seminar room E.

We'll discuss three sevenths (see below) of Antony Eagle's 'Twenty-One Arguments against Propensity Analyses of Probability', which is available here.

The parts we'll discuss: Section 3, Arguments 1, 2, 5, 6 and 13-17 (inclusive)

For those not too familiar with propensity accounts of probability, it might also be helpful to look at the introductory parts of the paper - Sections 1 (Analysing probability) and 2 (Propensity analyses), excluding subsection 2.5, which is about a version of the propensity view that isn't targeted by the arguments we'll be discussing.
