Why Dispositions are (Still) Distinct from their Bases and Causally Impotent

American Philosophical Quarterly 42 (1):19 - 31 (2005)
Abstract
It has now been over twenty years since Elizabeth Prior, Robert Pargetter, and Frank Jackson (1982) published their classic paper on dispositions, in which they defend the following theses: (1) The Distinctness Thesis: Each disposition is distinct from its base. (2) The Impotence Thesis: Dispositions are causally impotent.1..
