In Frank Jackson's paper, On Assertion and Indicative Conditionals he gives a criteria for when one should assert a conditional (material conditional). This criteria is given in terms of conditional probability.

In reading his paper, I have not seen him address when one should assert the negation of a conditional.

Could anyone explain to me how/if he addresses this in his paper implicitly? Or how the criteria could follow given what he says in his paper?
