## the epistemology of bruno de finetti

Bruno de Finetti is one of the most important figures in the foundations of uncertain reasoning. His contributions spanned across a number of questions, from the mathematics of probability theory, to the foundations of statistics and decision theory, to economic theory, to inductive logic. This project aims at isolating the contributions made by de Finetti to shaping the contemporary agenda for epistemology and the methodology of science.

- achieve socially desirable outcomes by (non regulated) use of derivatives?
