This chapter introduces the rules of applying the tracking conditions, and discusses the upshot of formulating the tracking conditions in terms of probability and counterfactuals. Criteria are introduced which provide a solution to the generality problem for tracking. Special kinds of epistemic luck are discussed, and the new view is defended against charges that tracking is too weak as an account of knowledge.

Keywords:   conditional probability, counterfactual, generality problem, tracking conditions, rules of application, Kripke barns, dumb luck, blind luck, future, causal overdetermination
