Probability reading group: Wednesday 22 Feb, 2.30pm

the probability reading group emerges from hibernation next Wednesday
(22 Feb) at 2.30pm in the Benjamin library. We will discuss the first
half (sections 1-6) of David Lewis's classic paper "Causal Decision

Our tentative plan for future sessions is to chaotically jump between
all sorts of topics, including decision theory, triviality results for
conditionals, and the semantics of probability operators (unless Paolo
wants to run "Modality and Probability" as a separate event; we'll
figure that out when he's back). Further suggestions are of course
welcome as well.
