... that (17) and (18) have in common—namely, they both depend for their interpretation on contextually determined standards of precision, where these standards are familiar objects of study in the literature on loose speech. At this point, I should pause to note that without accepting context probabilism...

... are not to be evaluated in and of themselves—but instead in terms of what they warrant doing —then why did we ever need a nonpragmatic vindication of probabilism ( Joyce 1998 )? The Dutch Book argument already shows that nonprobabilistic credences warrant acting in ways that lead to a sure loss. If—even in the context...

We have argued that probabilism is a useful tool for bringing forth structural problems with phenomenal conservatism; problems are not mere...

... and Wattenberg (1969) , can be used to save Regularity , and this response has been generally accepted by philosophers working in the area for the past several decades. 6 I think that this situation is largely based on a mistake about the role of numbers in mathematical representations.
