This chapter reviews the various interpretations of probability (§2.2), assessing them in the light of certain desiderata for a philosophical theory of probability that are presented in §2.1. It is suggested that present‐day objective Bayesianism, which is characterized in §2.3, is close to early views of probability, such as those of Jakob Bernoulli and Thomas Bayes.

Keywords:   probability, interpretation of probability, Bernoulli, Bayes
