Chances, Counterfactuals and Credences
14/12/2015 - 18:00 to 20:00
In this talk Prof. Bradley will investigate the relationship between subjective probability (degrees of belief) and objective uncertainty (chances), with a focus on Skyrms' thesis that the subjective probability of a counterfactual is the expected conditional chance of truth of its antecedent,...

המצאת שעון הקוורץ: מדידות, תקנים וטלקומוניקציה
16/03/2016 - 20:00 to 22:00
