    The conditional, if then, is probably the most important term in natural language and forms the core of systems of logic and mental representation. It occurs in all human languages and allows people to express their knowledge of the causal or law-like structure of the world and of others' behaviour. The way in which the conditional is modelled also determines the core of most logical ://:oso//. A. J. Ayer was one of the foremost analytical philosophers of the twentieth century, and was known as a brilliant and engaging speaker. In essays based on his influential Dewey Lectures, Ayer addresses some of the most critical and controversial questions in epistemology and the philosophy of science, examining the nature of inductive reasoning and grappling with the issues that most concerned ?id=jPpyGPJNn28C. Consider any probability function over the sentences of this argument which assigns non-zero probability to the antecedents of all conditionals — that is, any assignment of numbers to the non-conditional sentences which conforms to the Partition Principle, and to the conditional sentences which conforms to Supp's thesis: p(B if A) = p A (B The two most common conditionals are real and unreal, they are sometimes called if-clauses. The real conditional (often named 1st Conditional or Conditional Type I) describes situations based on fact. The unreal conditional (often named 2nd Conditional or Conditional Type

Counterfactuals are Simply Past Conditionals We thus get the idea that counterfactuals are simply past conditionals, twice over: first we talk about what worlds were accessible at a past time, second we talk about past events in the antecedent and consequent clauses.

We point out that it is instructive to examine Lewis's triviality result, which shows the conditions a conditional must satisfy for its probability to be the conditional :// 1. Introduction. Probabilistic analyses from a subjectivist, or Bayesian, point of view have been increasingly applied in cognitive psychology over recent years, and these analyses have led to a new probabilistic paradigm in the psychology of reasoning (Chater and Oaksford, , Over, ).Probability theory, and not extensional logic, supplies the computational level and formal theory

Conditional probability has been put to many uses in philosophy, and several proposals have been made regarding its relation to unconditional probability, especially in cases involving infinitely many alternatives that may have probability 0.
