This work evaluates and defends the idea that decision-theoretic representation theorems
can play an important role in showing how credences and utilities can be
characterised, at least in large part, in terms of their connection with preferences.
Roughly, a decision-theoretic representation theorem tells us that if an agent’s preferences
satisfy constraints C, then that agent can be represented as maximising her
expected utility under a unique set of credences (modelled by a credence...[Show more]
