Title: Helen Beebee
Evidential decision theorists -- and some causal decision theorists -- hold  
that we need to conceive agents as ascribing probabilities to the  
prospective alternative actions about which they are deliberating. But  
those probabilities must not be constrained by any facts about the past:  
the agent must conceive her prospective action as 'an ultimate and the only  
ultimate contingency', as Ramsey put it. Unfortunately, however, existing  
accounts of what agent probabilities are supposed to be -- and how they are  
supposed to override or render otiose what seem to be perfectly reasonable  
credences that violate this independence requirement on agent probabilities  
-- are unsatisfactory. I'm going to try and do a bit better.
