If I were a Dry Well-Made Match

Dialogue 12 (02):322-324 (1973)
Abstract
I discuss Goodman's claim that when 'all As are Bs' is a law then the counterfactual 'if a were an A, it would be a B' is tue. I give counterexamples, and link the failure of the connection to the contrast between higher level and lower level laws.
