Show Summary Details


The first objective of the essay was to separate issues that were sometimes confused, to clarify the subject, and to delineate those kinds of higher-order probabilities that should really be non-controversial. The second objective was to present a way in which Richard Jeffrey’s probability kinematics could be derived by conditioning in a framework of higher order probabilities.

Keywords: higher-order probabilities; probability kinematics
