Accuracy and the Laws of Credence

Richard Pettigrew

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces a first attempt at an accuracy-based argument for chance-credence principles. It adapts the accuracy-based argument for Probabilism by changing the notion of vindication from that proposed by the veritist to an alternative that has been endorsed by Alan Hájek. The chapter argues that, ultimately, it fails.

Keywords:   Vindication, accuracy, Principal Principle, chance, Alan Hájek
