... not rule out A , (if A , ¬ B ) and (if A , B ) are incompatible. If the bottle might have fallen, and you suppose that if the bottle fell it didn't break, then you thereby rule out the proposition that if it fell it broke. Given Commutativity, Idempotence, and Conditional Noncontradiction, we can...

..., and instead resort to the disquotational principle of truth that leads to paradox. But the material conditional is a simple truth function. Granted, its sensitivity to the order of its constituents may add some cognitive load beyond what is involved with commutative connectives like conjunction or disjunction...

..., incidentally, that a more general form of conditionalization (Jeffrey conditioning) violates the commutativity of evidence (see Kelly 2008 : 7n8). 44. Hazlett's article focuses on belief, rather than credence, but I don't think this is crucial to his view. See also Turnbull and Sampson 2020...

... of two different consecutive Jeffrey updates, we run into the problem of commutativity, where the order of these updates matters (see Weisberg 2009). To avoid the problem, it is best to wrap both seeming-states together into one partition. However, we doubt that simply treating the two seemings as one...
