Title: Narration in Judiciary Fact-Finding: A Probabilistic Explication
Speaker: Rafal Urbaniak (Ghent University)


Abstract: One of the alternatives to legal probabilism (the view that juridical fact-nding should be modeled using Bayesian methods) is the narration view, according to which instead we should conceptualize the process in terms of competing narrations of what happened. The goal of this paper is to develop a reconciliatory account, on which the narration view is construed from the Bayesian perspective within the framework of formal Bayesian epistemology.

Hosted by the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, the University of Tokyo
