Klein on Relative Certainty

Philosophy Research Archives 13:271-274 (1987)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Peter Klein claims to have explicated the notion of relative certainty and shown how it is related to the notion of absolute evidential certainty in his book Certainty. I argue that he has not succeeded at this because the account of relative certainty provided only applies to a subset of the pairs of propositions about which we make judgments of relative certainty.
