Reliability Theory II 66
Distinction / Reliability / Meaning / Possible World / Cresswell: the worlds that determine the rightness or wrongness of the display should not be finer than the distinctive worlds to which the machine reacts. - Reliability: otherwise you might not expect in principle that it is reliable from the machine. - We would then not understand what it means to be reliable. - General: The machine is reliable in world w iff w is in the set of worlds which represent what the machine in w says how things could be.
