Title: Michael Duncan
Title: Is the principle of indifference really inconsistent?
Abstract: The principle of indifference, which says that the probabilities
of two or more events are equal if there is no known reason to think that
one will occur rather than any one of the others, appears to give
inconsistent results in certain problem cases (the book paradox, Bertrand's
chord problem, the perfect cube factory problem, the water-wine paradox).
As a result, it is widely held to be false. I will attempt a general
solution to the problem, which I hope might go some way towards saving the
principle of indifference.
