Propensities and indeterminism

In A. O' Hear (ed.), Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities. Cambridge University Press. pp. 121--47 (1996)
In these prefatory remarks, which are designed to locate my topic within the complex and wide-stretching field of Popper's thought and writings, I shall not say anything that those familiar with his work will not already know. Moreover, what I do say will take as understood many of the problems and theories, not to mention the terminology, that I shall later be doing my best to make understandable. My apologies are therefore due equally to those who know something about Popper's discussions of indeterminism and of the propensity interpretation of probability, and to those who know nothing.
