PHIL 430 - Decision Theory (3)


This course is a philosophical examination of decision theory, which attempts to give an account of how we should make decisions whose outcomes depend upon facts about which we are uncertain. Part of the course focuses on puzzle cases where competing approaches to decision making yield different results. Other topics to be considered include whether our best approaches to decision making are psychologically feasible, and whether and how decision theory should accommodate our different attitudes towards risk.  Recommended Preparation: One 300-level course in philosophy with a grade of C or better, especially PHIL 346 , PHIL 371 , PHIL 372 , or PHIL 380 .
