Bayesian epistemology

Author: Luc Bovens; Stephan Hartmann; Oxford University Press.
Publisher: Oxford : Clarendon Press, 2003.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Probabilistic models have much to offer to philosophy. We continually receive information from many sources - our senses, witnesses, scientific instruments - and assess whether to believe it. The authors provide a systematic Bayesian account of these features of reasoning.
