In Experiment 1, we test Spohn's (2012) assumption that ∆P = P(C|A) - P(C|~A) is a good predictor of ratings of perceived relevance and reason relations, and we examine whether it is a better predictor than the difference measure (P(C|A) - P(C)). In Experiment 2, we examine the effects of relevance on probabilistic coherence in Cruz, Baratgin, Oaksford, and Over's (2015) uncertain "and-to-if" inferences. The results suggest that ∆P predicts perceived relevance and reason relations better than the difference measure and that participants are either less probabilistically coherent in "and-to-if" inferences than initially assumed or that they do not follow P(if A, then C) = P(C|A) ("the Equation"). Results are discussed in light of recent results suggesting that the Equation may not hold under conditions of irrelevance or negative relevance.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Skovgaard-Olsen, Niels</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Klauer, Karl Christoph</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Klauer, Karl Christoph</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Relevance and Reason Relations</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-06-27T08:16:33Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Singmann, Henrik</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-06-27T08:16:33Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Skovgaard-Olsen, Niels</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
