Representation Theorems and the Grounds of Intentionality
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]
