### Abstract

Abstract. We examine the notion of conditionals and the role of conditionals in inductive logics and arguments. We identify three mistakes commonly made in the study of, or motivation for, non-classical logics. A nonmonotonic consequence relation based on evidential probability is formulated. With respect to this acceptance relation some rules of inference of System P are unsound, and we propose refinements that hold in our framework. 1 Three mistakes Pure Mathematics is the class of all propositions of the form ‘p implies q’... And logical constants are all notions definable in terms of the following: Implication, the relation of a term to a class of which it is a member... [45, p.3]. Thus begins the precursor of Principia Mathematica, Russell’s Principles of Mathematics, and thus begins the sad and confusing twentieth century tale of implication.
