Choice & Inference

Along with Jake Chandler (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven), I have just initiated a new blog called Choice & Inference (at the url! Choice & Inference provides a platform for dialogue and news within the fields of formal epistemology and decision theory, broadly construed. Topics include (but are not limited to) uncertain and ampliative inference, coherence, paradoxes of belief and / or action, belief revision, disagreement and consensus, causal discovery, epistemology of religion, etc. And the formal tools used to pursue questions within these topics include (but are not limited to) game theory and decision theory, formal learning theory, probability theory and statistics, networks and graphs, and formal logic.

Contributors so far include: Alan Hájek, Carlo Martini, Franz Huber, Gregory Wheeler, Horacio Arló-Costa, Jake Chandler, Jan Sprenger, Jan-Willem Romeijn, Jeffrey Helzner, Jon Williamson, Jonah Schupbach, Katie Steele, Kevin Zollman, Luc Bovens, Richard Bradley, Stefan Wintein, Stephan Hartmann, Ted Poston, Tomoji Shogenji, Trent Dougherty, and Vincenzo Crupi. Also, Choice & Inference is run with the support of some external affiliates: Carnegie Mellon University; the Formal Epistemology Project, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven; and the Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science, Tilburg University.

The blog is shaping up to be a wonderful resource to those doing formal work related to rationality! Anyone working within the relevant fields who is interested in becoming a contributor to Choice & Inference is welcome to contact either Jake Chandler or myself (you can find our email addresses on our respective websites).
