From Zeno to Arbitrage: Essays on Quantity, Coherence, and Induction

Brian Skyrms


The essays in the book center on the concept of probability. What is the framework within which probability comfortably lives? What are the coherence principles that must be satisfied for degrees of belief to be probabilities, and how do these principles generalize to probability change? What is the relation between coherent degrees of belief, beliefs about chances, and inductive inference? What constraints does coherence put on inductive skepticism?

Keywords: quantity, Zeno of Elea, probability, dynamic coherence, inductive logic, inductive skepticism
