Henry Kyburg’s innovative ideas about probability and its role in scientific inference impacted not only philosophy, but artificial intelligence and the decision sciences too. This special issue of Synthese is designed to complement the successful Harper and Wheeler (2007) collection with a mixture of invited papers and submitted papers touching upon Kyburg’s work in epistemology, the philosophy of science, decision theory, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Original papers, prepared for blind review, should be submitted to either Horacio Arló-Costa (hcosta (at) andrew.cmu.edu) or Gregory Wheeler (grw (at) fct.unl.pt) before July 30, 2008.
