A gradable approach to dispositions

Philosophical Quarterly 57 (226):68–75 (2007)
Abstract
Previous theories of the relationship between dispositions and conditionals are unable to account for the fact that dispositions come in degrees. We propose a fix for this problem that has the added benefit of avoiding the classic problems of finks and masks.
