A Philosophical Guide to Conditionals

Jonathan Bennett

Expounds, mainly on the basis of Adams's work, the logic of indicative conditionals—with some help from his adaptation of Venn diagrams. Failure for indicatives of or‐to‐if, contraposition, transitivity, and antecedent strengthening. Controversy over whether modus ponens holds for indicatives. Independent indicatives identified and snubbed.

Keywords:   Adams, antecedent strengthening, conditionals, contraposition, independent indicatives, indicative conditionals, modus ponens, or‐to‐if, transitivity, Venn
