On Tuesday May 24th at 12:30 the CADILLAC Workshop will feature a book release event with a special talk:
From Probability to Knowledge:
a Bayesian semantics for epistemic logic
Readings in Formal Epistemology
Editors: Horacio Arló-Costa, Vincent F. Hendricks, Johan van Benthem
Assistant Editors: Henrik Boensvang & Rasmus K. Rendsvig
XII, 1005 pages, 77 illustrations
This volume presents 38 classic texts in formal epistemology, and strengthens the ties between research into this area of philosophy and its neighbouring intellectual disciplines. The editors provide introductions to five subsections: Bayesian Epistemology, Belief Change, Decision Theory, Interactive Epistemology and Epistemic Logic.
‘Formal epistemology’ is a term coined in the late 1990s for a new constellation of interests in philosophy, the origins of which are found in earlier works of epistemologists, philosophers of science and logicians. It addresses a growing agenda of problems concerning knowledge, belief, certainty, rationality, deliberation, decision, strategy, action and agent interaction – and it does so using methods from logic, probability, computability, decision and game theory. The volume also includes a thorough index and suggestions for further reading, and thus offers a complete teaching and research package for students as well as research scholars of formal epistemology, philosophy, logic, computer science, theoretical economics and cognitive psychology.
