Show Summary Details


It is tempting to analyse many properties, from colours to values, in terms of powers or dispositions to affect us, or even in terms of conditionals saying what we would experience in response to their presence. This chapter considers how such theories need developing, and what costs and benefits attach to them.

Keywords: finkish properties; response-dependence; dispositions; conditionals
