Belief / knowledge / disjunction / conjunction / probability / Nozick: conjunction: we can believe it with only connection to one. - Disjunction: here we need both. - Adjunction: from the premises p, q, we can conclude the conjunction p & q as the conclusion. - prblty: here adjunction may fail because the conjunction of two premises is of a lower prblty than each individual. - Universal Generalization / EG: we can believe it without connecting to a specific instance!
