Belief and Counterfactuals

A Study in Means-End Philosophy

Franz Huber

  • Provides an accessible introduction to belief revision and ranking theory to new readers
  • Contains several novel arguments, accounts, and applications to a broad range of questions in epistemology, logic, metaphysics, the philosophy of science, and metaethics
  • Features the use of means-end philosophy as a unifying methodological approach, seriously treating philosophy as a normative discipline, in which philosophical problems are entangled with each other
  • Presents means-end philosophy as an original methodology that explains the importance of logic to the discipline
