Symmetries and asymmetries in evidential support

Philosophical Studies 107 (2):129 - 142 (2002)

Several forms of symmetry in degrees of evidential support areconsidered. Some of these symmetries are shown not to hold in general. This has implications for the adequacy of many measures of degree ofevidential support that have been proposed and defended in the philosophical literature.
