Course Description
Foundations and philosophical applications of Bayesian decision theory, game theory and theory of collective choice. Why should degrees of belief be probabilities? Is it always rational to maximize expected utility? If so, why and what is its utility? What is a solution to a game? What does a gametheoretic solution concept such as Nash equilibrium say about how rational players will, or should, act in a game?
