Bayesian Probability

A revision of a previous probability based on new information. In Bayesian analysis, one makes mathematical assumptions about unavailable information. As that information is gathered and disseminated, the Bayesian probability corrects or replaces the assumptions and alters its results accordingly.

Since beliefs are personal and such probability assignments are arbitrary, Bayesianism is hardly scientific: it is only a variety of gambling.

Our goal has been to move evidence-based policymaking toward Bayesianism. At its most fundamental level, Bayes' Law is the science of learning.
Overall this book is an impressive example of formal epistemology that tackles two significant challenges for traditional Bayesianism. The approach is methodical and apart from the core of these two primary tasks the book contains a number of valuable side insights.
It must nonetheless be conceded that Popper's deductivism, in contrast to some forms of inductivism, and especially in contrast to Bayesianism, has no extensively developed account of what is usually called decision making under uncertainty and risk.
