Abstract:

Recently, Cariani et al have reported a fascinating new impossibility
theorem for judgment aggregation. In this talk, I will provide the
background necessary to understand this new result, and I will try to
explain how it is related to other, similar results in contemporary
logic and philosophy of science.

Branden Fitelson is a Professor in the Philosophy Department at
Rutgers University. He was formerly a Professor at Berkeley in the
Philosophy, Cognitive Science and Logic Group. His main areas of
interest are probability and inductive inference, logic and
reasoning.
