Disjunction II 236
Belief / knowledge / disjunction / conjunction / probability / Nozick: we can believe a conjunction with connection only to one side - disjunction: here we need both - adjunction from the premises p, q we can infer the conjunction p & q - probability: here the adjunction can fail because the conjunction of two premises has a lower probability than each individual - universal generalization / E.G.: we can believe E.G. without any connection to a specific instance.
