... level can coexist with its absence at a lower level. Unlike previous arguments for the level-specificity of chance, the present argument shows, in a precise sense, that higher-level chance does not collapse into epistemic probability, despite higher-level properties supervening on lower-level ones...

... assumptions than they really need. When we strip these arguments down to a minimal core, we can see both how certain replies miss the mark, and also how to devise parallel arguments for other domains, including epistemic “might,” probability claims, claims about comparative value, and so on. A popular reply...

... probability, when she acted, that B was not liable to be killed. (77) To support this idea, Lazar appeals to contrasting two-agent cases, in which innocent victims are harmed by rights violators in different epistemic situations. Though these cases provide some intuitive support for Risky Killing...

The way out of such conundrums, Moss suggests, is to countenance probabilistic knowledge: credences can constitute knowledge, just as full beliefs can . Countenancing probabilistic...

The basic model for this way of thinking, often called “Bayesian,” is that an agent's degrees of belief can be represented by a probability function, which changes by incorporating new information as certain.
