The Unexpected Examination

12 09 2005

Timothy Chow published an article about seven years ago about the Unexpected Examination paradox. Along with the article, he has a bibliography of just about every philosophy paper that discusses the paradox, which seems quite interesting to me. I just found this article because the bibliography was recently updated on the arXiv (which is something that we in philosophy could do well to adapt, I’m sure).

Anyway, someone should do something like this for the Sleeping Beauty problem, which seems to have been first discussed around the time that article was written. (The link there is a good start, but definitely needs some updating. Especially with the good new work being done on the problem right now.)
