The following reading list is for the benefit of the potential audience of the workshop who are not familiar with the philosophical discussions about dispositions.
Martin, C. (1994), ¡®Dispositions and Conditionals', The Philosophical Quarterly, 44: 1-8.
Martin famously presents ¡®electro-fink' counterexamples to the simple conditional analysis of dispositions and voices deep scepticism about the prospect of any conditional analysis of dispositions.
Lewis, D. (1997), ¡®Finkish Dispositions', The Philosophical Quarterly, 47: 143-158.
Lewis agrees with Martin that his examples indeed bring the simple conditional analysis of dispositions to an end; yet, unlike Martin, Lewis attempts to propose an alternative conditional analysis of dispositions.
Bird, Alexander (1998), ¡®Dispositions and Antidotes', The Philosophical Quarterly, 48: 227-234.
Bird puts forward counterexamples to Lewis's analysis of dispositions.
Choi, S. (2005), ¡®Do Categorical Ascriptions Entail Counterfactual Conditionals', The Philosophical Quarterly 55: 495-503
Choi first discusses the possibility of finking dispositional or categorical properties intrinsically. His view is severely criticised by Randolph Clarke's ¡®Intrinsic Finks'
Choi, S. (manuscript), ¡®Opposing Opposing Powers'
This is a criticism of Clarke's ¡®Opposing Powers'
