Philosophical Review 109 (2):277-281 (2000)

Abstract
This collection of essays is a Festschrift for Ernest W. Adams, and is based on a symposium that was held in his honor in 1993. As the title suggests, most of the essays focus on probability and the logic of conditionals, and the relationship between them; they draw their inspiration from Adams’s seminal work on the subject. As a computer scientist, I was struck by just how much the topics discussed play a major role in much recent work in computer science, and how relevant much recent work in computer science is to some of the issues discussed here.
