Wittgensteinian Bayesianism

(p.105) 6 Wittgensteinian Bayesianism
From a Deflationary Point of View

Paul Horwich (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This essay discusses the programme called ‘therapeutic Bayesianism’ from three abstract points of view: substantial, foundational, and meta-philosophical. It illustrates treatments of the ‘raven’ paradox and the puzzle of diverse data, and defends the propriety of certain idealizations. It criticises a meta-philosophical perspective that does not properly distinguish science from the philosophy of science, and overvalues the use of symbolic apparatus.

Keywords:   therapeutic Bayesianism, raven paradox, meta-philosophy, science, puzzle
