A precondition of Aumann's agreement theorem and its numerous generalizations is that the agents must have the same priors. Without **common priors**, the agents can disagree easily. ~~The~~One can justify the assumption of common priors~~ can be justified~~ by noting that it would be awfully strange if rational beliefs could depend on seemingly arbitrary starting features of the agent.
