Are physical properties dispositions?

Philosophy of Science 62 (1):141-149 (1995)
Abstract
Averill (1990) argues that not every property is a disposition. I claim here that his reasoning is faulty, suffering at one point from a logical error and at other points from an inadequate account of counterfactuals.
