The Mixed Account of Luck

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


On two earlier occasions, I have spelled out and defended what, henceforth, I call a Mixed Account of luck. 1 It is mixed because it combines the conditions of two main rival accounts of luck: the control condition and the modal condition. Moreover, it also has a significance condition (see Peels 2015: 77–79; 2017: 200–207). Since my account had to be sketchy on those earlier occasions, I am glad that the editors have invited me to spell out my view in more detail, contrast it with various other accounts, and defend it against objections.
