These are drafts, papers and short notes, some technical and some for lay audiences.

 

Bias: Philosophy and Psychology

 

The Varieties of Bias

This short, non-technical essay introduces what is meant by biased opinion and what is special about value bias. This will be a chapter introduction of Bias and Belief at some point.

 

Logic and Induction

 

Some Key References on the Cox Proof of Bayesianism

The Cox Proof is a crucial basis of Bayesian inductive logic, yet among some philosophers I've talked to there is the impression that it has somehow been refuted. This short technical note uses some new references to justify taking the Cox Proof seriously.

 

Measuring Information: Shannon versus Popper

This is a short note, extracted and adapted from Value and Belief, to persuade philosophers that Shannon's information measure has a desirable property of consistency.
