Title: Rational Belief: Four Approaches, One Theory
Date: Friday, 22 February 2013
B-9000 Ghent, Belgium
What should a joint theory of rational belief and rational degrees of belief look like? While the former concept will contribute principles of doxastic logic, the latter will contribute principles of probability theory, but how can we make sense of their interaction? I will present four different approaches of how to answer this question: as it happens, all of them will ultimately justify one and the same joint theory of belief and degrees of belief.
