Gerard Rothfus — Philosopher


My primary research areas are decision theory and formal epistemology. The dissertation I am currently writing concerns the import of dynamic consistency principles in the context of Jeffrey-style decision theories. I also have interests in formal ethics and social welfare theory.

A more detailed statement of my research program can be found here.
