Relevance of initial and final conditions for the fluctuation relation in Markov processes

A Puglisi, L Rondoni, A Vulpiani
2006 Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment  
Numerical observations on a Markov chain and on the continuous Markov process performed by a granular tracer show that the "usual" fluctuation relation for a given observable is not verified for finite  ...  Furthermore, the Markov chain and the granular tracer behave in a quite similar fashion.  ...  -A.

Conditional Assertions and "Biscuit" Conditionals

Keith DeRose, Richard E. Grandy
1999 Noûs  
And the theory explains the data that might lead you to adopt a different theory of biscuit conditionals if you gave yourself the luxury of providing a separate treatment of them.  ...  If you don't know whether C is relevant, but do know that it would be relevant under condition A, then being able to make a conditional assertion of C on the condition that A would be very helpful.  ...

The relevance effect and conditionals

Niels Skovgaard-Olsen, Henrik Singmann, Karl Christoph Klauer
2016 Cognition  
We manipulated relevance in the evaluation of the probability and acceptability of indicative conditionals and found that relevance moderates the effect of P(C|A).  ...  Finally, the probability and acceptability of concessive conditionals ("Even if A, then still C") were investigated and it was found that the Equation provides a better account for concessive conditionals  ...  So perhaps relevance should be set aside for our theories of conditionals after all.  ...

Self-perception and characteristics of premanipulation attitudes: A test of Bem's theory

Stephen A. Chris, Howard D. Woodyard
1973 Memory & Cognition  
In a study to provide evidence for the assumption of self-perception theory that premanipulation attitudes are not salient to postmanipulation phenomenology, Bern and McConnell (1970) performed two forced-compliance  ...  The results of this study indicate that premanipulation attitudes are salient to the postmanipulation phenomenology of Ss for whom these attitudes are highly relevant.  ...  However, results do indicate a significant interaction (p < .01) effect between the treatment conditions and levels of attitude relevance.  ...

Addressing Covid-19 Vaccination Conspiracy Theories and Vaccination Intentions

Lotte Pummerer, Kevin Winter, Kai Sassenberg
2022 European Journal of Health Communication  
Results showed that individuals reading the relevant explanations addressing uncertainties surrounding the new vaccination method were less likely to agree with a Covid-19 vaccination conspiracy theory  ...  Participants either only read short facts about the new vaccination (no explanation condition), or read these facts in addition to an explanation about the function of messenger RNA vaccines (relevant  ...  Mediation Analyses As an exploratory analysis, we tested whether the agreement with a Covid-19 vaccination conspiracy theory explained the effect of the relevant explanation condition on vaccination intention  ...

The Irrelevance of Relevance

David Botting
2013 Informal Logic  
The lack of a theory of relevance in the current state of the art of informal logic has often been considered regrettable, a gap that must be filled before the Relevance-Sufficiency-Acceptability model  ...  Criticism of theories of relevance, for example in Woods (1992), is deflated.  ...  Theories of relevance Most theories of relevance are propositional, that is to say, they construe relevance as a relation between propositions.  ...

Adding to Relevant Restricted Quantification

Jc Beall
2011 The Australasian Journal of Logic  
This paper presents, in a more general setting, a simple approach to 'relevant restricted generalizations' advanced in previous work.  ...  An objection to the approach, due to David Ripley, is presented, followed by three brief replies, one from a dialetheic perspective and the others more general.  ...  logic (and many of the relevant logics are appropriate in the target sense), we need not look further for an A-level restricted conditional (or B-level if we have it).  ...

A general framework for the analysis of concept identification tasks

Jeroen G.W. Raaijmakers
1981 Acta Psychologica  
This extension of the theory is important because it is a much more stringent test of the theory. The present theory is a modification of the duoprocess theory as presented by Chumbley (1972) .  ...  In condition 3 the relevant dimensions were reversed so that group 1 now had dim 2 as the relevant dimension and group 2, dim 1. A total of 92 Ss participated in this experiment.  ...

Learning to fear depends on emotion and gaze interaction: The role of self-relevance in fear learning

Yoann Stussi, Tobias Brosch, David Sander
2015 Biological Psychology  
Here, we propose a new theoretical framework based on appraisal theories of emotion, which holds that emotional learning is modulated by a process of relevance detection.  ...  Testing the model, we predicted faster, larger acquisition and greater resistance to extinction of the conditioned response (CR) to self-relevant stimuli relative to stimuli with less relevance.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported by the National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) Affective Sciences, financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation (51NF40-104897), and hosted by  ...
