Case 1: incomplete information concerning equiprobable events. Suppose you have two keys, A and B, the first for your house and the second for your office. The probability that A will open the house door is 1, and the probability that it will open the office door is 0; similarly for key B. These are objective probabilities: they are physical properties of the four keylock couples in question. Suppose now that you are fumbling in the dark with the keys and that you have no tactual clues as to which is which.
1 46 M. BUNGE 6. CONCLUDING REMARKS We have examined five concepts of probability, each of them in three respects: mathematical validity, scientific viability, and philosophical plausibility. The concepts in question are the following: the semiabstract concept defined implicitly by probability theory, the "logical" concept, the notion of personalist (or subjective or Bayesian) probability, the frequency conception, and the propensity interpretation. We have taken the majority view that the mathematical concept of probability is adequately characterized by the standard theory of probability developed along the lines of Kolmogoroff's work.

For a discussion of the origins of the probability notion related to this historical account, one may read Jeffrey (1984). 3 This discussion of Galileo concerned a popular game played with three dices and known as "passadieci". It may be found in the short paper "Sopra Ie scoperte de i dadi". Published in Galilei (1929-1939), VIII: 591-594.
