The volume is a collection of articles on Bruno de Finetti. It is meant to shed new light on thge multifarious personality of Bruno de Finetti and his outstanding contributions not only to probability and statistics, but also to economics and philosophy. Rather than focusing on de Finetti's technical work on probability, the essays collected in the book address the philosophy underpinning all of de Finetti's writings, a view Richard Jeffrey labelled "radical probabilism". The volume contains an Appendix on de Finettis book "L'invenzione della verità" written in 1934 and published in 2006, which contains an extensive description of de Finetti's philosophical viewpoint revolving around the idea that our knowledge is the product of human thought, which in such enterprise is guided by considerations of utility, rather than metaphysical principles.

Abstract

The volume is a collection of articles on Bruno de Finetti. It is meant to shed new light on thge multifarious personality of Bruno de Finetti and his outstanding contributions not only to probability and statistics, but also to economics and philosophy. Rather than focusing on de Finetti's technical work on probability, the essays collected in the book address the philosophy underpinning all of de Finetti's writings, a view Richard Jeffrey labelled "radical probabilism". The volume contains an Appendix on de Finettis book "L'invenzione della verità" written in 1934 and published in 2006, which contains an extensive description of de Finetti's philosophical viewpoint revolving around the idea that our knowledge is the product of human thought, which in such enterprise is guided by considerations of utility, rather than metaphysical principles.
