Résumé :

Anglais

This paper is concerned with formal solutions to the lottery paradox on which high probability defeasibly warrants acceptance. It considers some recently proposed solutions of this type and presents an argument showing that these solutions are trivial in that they boil down to the claim that perfect probability is sufficient for rational acceptability. The argument is then generalized, showing that a broad class of similar solutions faces the same problem. 1. An argument against some formal solutions to the lottery paradox 2. The argument generalized 3. Some variations 4. Adding modalities 5. Anticipated objections
