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.
