Project Title:  New Perspectives on Bayesian Coherence Theory

Project Description:  During my visit at the CPNSS, I will attempt to refine the models of Bayesian Coherence Theory in a number of ways. I will try to make Bayesian Coherence Theory more empirically grounded by constructing models of how coherence reasoning is and ought to be used in the court-room. Also, I will model coherent sets that include higher-order testimonies (testimonies about the reliability of other testimonies); a kind of coherence neglected by most current models.

I also have an interest in the philosophy of the social sciences and will teach in that subject during Lent Term 2013
