The Failure of the Ramsey Test
Adam Morton recently argued that the Ramsey test of whether we may accept a conditional as true embodies a misunderstanding of the function of indicative conditionals (2004: 294). I attack the Ramsey Test for different reasons; there are conditionals that we should accept as true that the Ramsey Test tells us to reject and there are conditionals that we should reject that the Ramsey Test tells us to accept.
