|Terminology||Lewis V 153
Definition robust/Jackson/Lewis: A is robust in relation to B, (with respect to one's subjective probability at a time) iff. the probability of A and the probability of A conditional to B are close to each other, and both are high,...
...so if one learns that B, still considers A probable.
Jackson: the weaker can then be more robust in terms of something that you think is more unlikely but still do not want to ignore.
