Philosophy of probability reading group

This group meets most weeks to discuss a paper in the philosophy of probability. The focus is on recent work, and we're particularly keen to discuss participants' work.

There's no overriding sub-theme, but here are a few topics we've discussed recently:
  • Rationality constraints on credences
  • Probabilities of conditionals and conditional probabilities
  • Propensities
  • De se credences
  • Regularity and infinitesimal probabilities
  • The relationship between credence and objective probability
All are very welcome to attend (but be warned that the discussion can get fairly technical at times).

The meetings often occur on Wednesday at 2pm, but please check more recent posts for up-to-date information.
