Abstract

Assigning truth-conditions to conditional statements leads to problems in assigning probabilities to those statements (Lewis, 1976). This note presents and assesses a trivalent semantics of conditional sentence, arguing that this semantics does well at capturing the probabilities of conditional statements. The major problems and prospects for this view are reviewed.
