However, the fact that p rather than ~p, is just a tedious pleonasm for the fact that p. I do not claim that if one explains p, then one has ipso facto explained every proposition logically equivalent to p. But if it is a fact that p, it follows, by double negation, which only those bordering on idiocy could fail to appreciate, that it is not a fact that ~p. There is nothing more here to explain: a person explains the fact that p rather than ~p iff he explains the fact that p. So some explanations are not contrastive.
Or perhaps it is the fact that some event occurred which explains the fact that some other event occurred. On the other hand, another possibility is that it is true statements which explain true statements rather than events which explain events. ) Even if this is so, statements explain and are explained only in virtue of the way the things in the world which they are about really are. If it is the statement that there is a short circuit that explains the statement that there is a fire, the explanation only works in virtue of the real short circuit bringing about the real fire (and although it would not be true, strictly speaking, that it is the short circuit that explains the fire).
It seems arbitrary to allow that the information has explanatory force in the case of one outcome, but to deny that the information has any explanatory force in the case of the other. This question should be considered by anyone who is inclined to accept a high epistemic probability model and deny a low epistemic probability model: why should exactly the same information, which intuitively seems equally relevant to both events, explain one but not the other? Of course, the convinced high epistemic probability modellist can always reply: because the information makes what is to be explained highly probable or likely in one case but not in the other.
