Probabilistic confirmation and partial entailment, yet again

Crupi V. and Tentori K., Confirmation as partial entailment: A representation theorem in inductive logicJournal of Applied Logic, 11 (2013): 364-372.



Abstract. The most prominent research program in inductive logic – here just labeled The Program, for simplicity – relies on probability theory as its main building block and aims at a proper generalization of deductive-logical relations by a theory of partial entailment. We prove a representation theorem by which a class of ordinally equivalent measures of inductive support or confirmation is singled out as providing a uniquely coherent way to work out these two major sources of inspiration of The Program.
