We introduce a generalization of epsilon-probability functions and a new correspondence with rational consequence relations. The rational consequence relations corresponding to the generalized epsilon-probability functions of maximum entropy are investigated and it is shown that in this case the analogous notion of `maximum entropy closure' equals the rational closure, thus reconfirming the rational closure of a conditional knowledge base as the simplest, least prejudiced, rational consequence relation satisfying that knowledge base.
