Bayesian perspectives on epistemic value

Readings for Monday

It is time to start reading Joyce. For next Monday, please read sections 1-9 of Joyce’s “Acuracy and coherence”, and skim sections 10-12.

Note: Don’t panic if you don’t understand everything that’s going on! One of the skills it’s good to develop is the skill of getting a big-picture view of what’s going on in a paper without going through all of the nitty-gritty details (leaving those for a 2nd or 3rd reading). This is a good paper to practice that skill on.
