A Remark on Iffy Oughts

I have a short piece forthcoming that takes a closer look at what lessons we should draw from the miners paradox about conditional obligations. As some of you may know, Niko Kolodny and John MacFarlane have argued that our best solution to the paradox rejects modus ponens. I am not convinced. If you'd like to know why, see my "A Remark on Iffy Oughts," which is to appear in the Journal of Philosophy. As always, the latest version of the paper is available in the Research section.

Also, "Realizing What Might Be" has just recently appeared in print in Philosophical Studies.
