preprint description
I derive a novel sufficient condition for a belief set to be representable by a probability function: if at least one comparative confidence ordering of a certain type satisfies Scott's axiom, then the belief set used to construct that ordering is representable. This provides support for Kenny Easwaran's project of analyzing doxastic states in terms of belief sets rather than credences.
