I was just out at a small coffee shop reading Brandom's most recent book on Reason in Philosophy. I got up for get a refill on my coffee, and foolishly (as it turns out) left my book on the table where I was sitting. When I got back to the table (maybe 2 minutes later), the Brandom book was gone!
That's right: someone stole a Robert Brandom book. I also had on the table an almost-new copy of Putnam's Reason, Truth, and History, which was untouched.
What are the appropriate inferences?
