While doing research for a post on the idea of a distinction between “risk” and “(Knightian) uncertainty”, I came across a surprisingly large number of different ways of describing the idea that some probabilities may be more or less “reliable”, “trustworthy”, “well-grounded”, etc. than others, or things along those lines. (Note that I’m referring to the idea of different degrees of trustworthiness-or-whatever, rather than two or more fundamentally different types of probability that vary in trustwo
Thanks for the feedback!
I think sometimes posts with a lot of synonyms are hard to have take aways from, because it's hard to remember all the synonyms. What I think is useful is comparing and contrasting the different takes, creating a richer view of the whole framework by examining it from many angles.
Yeah, I'd agree with that, and it's part of why fleshing this out is currently low priority for me (since the latter approach takes actual work!), but remains theoretically on the list :)
