The Principle of Sufficient Reason and Probability

(p.261) 11 The Principle of Sufficient Reason and Probability

This paper argues that considerations about frequency-to-chance inferences make very plausible a localized version of the Principle of Sufficient Reason (PSR). But a localized version isn’t enough and so we should accept a full, non-localized version of PSR.

Keywords:   explanation, nonmeasurable sets, principle of sufficient reason, probability, PSR
