Alex Worsnip, “Believing at Will (or: I’d Do Anything for Cash, but I Can’t Do That)” There are probably a lot of things that you would do for $1,000,000. But suppose you are offered $1,000,000 to believe that the number of stars in the universe is even. It seems like you couldn't do it - at least, not easily.

Conference on Inference and Reasoning

March 16 - March 18

To infer is to draw a conclusion from some premises.  To reason is to consider what conclusion to draw from some premises.  But how, more specifically, do these acts differ from the many other mental acts that agents can perform?  In what way are these acts mental, and in what way are they acts rather than merely events?  What epistemic role do they play?

Speaker Series: Cass Sunstein (Harvard)

March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Preferring A to B, While Also Preferring B to A Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University  In important contexts, people prefer option A to option B when they evaluate the two separately, but prefer option B to option A when they evaluate the two jointly. In consumer behavior, politics, and law, such preference reversals are often a product of the pervasive problem of "evaluability." Some important characteristics of options are difficult or impossible to assess in separate evaluation, and hence choosers disregard or downplay them; those…
