Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Mind Research Interest Group Talk (J. Dmitri Gallow, ACU)
Friday October 8, 2021, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Mind Research Group welcomes J. Dmitri Gallow, a senior research fellow at the Dianoia Institute of Philosophy at the Australian Catholic University (ACU). Dr. Gallow’s research focuses on the metaphysics of causation and chance, the rational norms governing credence and choice, and the connections between those topics.
Chance Deference De Se
Principles of chance deference face two kinds of problems. In the first place, they face difficulties with a priori knowable contingencies. In the second place, they face difficulties in cases where you’ve lost track of the time. I provide a generalisation of these principles which handles these problem cases. The generalisation has surprising consequences for Adam Elga’s Sleeping Beauty puzzle.
