Richard Bradley is professor of philosophy at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He works mainly on decision making under uncertainty, but has broad research interests in formal epistemology, value theory, social choice, and philosophy of language (especially conditionals). His recent book “Decision with a Human Face” attempts to provide a theory of rational belief attitude formation and decision making for agents that face uncertainty taking a variety of forms and that are aware of their own bounds. During his time at Princeton, he will be looking at the implications of scientific uncertainty for policy making and focusing on the question of how to assess policies that differ in the nature and extent of the uncertainty that they impose on people.
