After discussing six basic problems for the explication of normal conditions and seven interpretations that do not well solve those problems I turn to what I call the epistemic account. According to it the normal is, roughly, the not unexpected. This is developed into a rigorous constructive account of normal conditions, which makes essential use of ranking theory and in particular allows to explain the phenomenon of multiply exceptional conditions. Finally, this static account is extended to a schematic dynamic model of how we may learn about those normal and (multiply) exceptional conditions.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-03-02T18:16:26Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-03-02T18:16:26Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The epistemic account of ceteris paribus conditions</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
