Dispositions and antidotes

Philosophical Quarterly 48 (191):227-234 (1998)
Abstract
In ‘Finkish Dispositions’1 David Lewis proposes an analysis of dispositions which improves on the simple conditional analysis. In this paper I show that Lewis’ analysis still fails. I also argue that repairs are of no avail, and suggest why this is so.
