Beliefs and Believing

(p.87) Chapter 3 Beliefs and Believing
Inside Man
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the modeling of human beliefs and the act of believing. It considers the probabilistic models of the personal degrees of belief that an individual holds regarding the truth value of various propositions, and discusses the principles of the principal-agent model of affect and cognition. The chapter also suggests that modelers can use the basic probabilistic framework for measuring personal degrees of belief in order to understand and model the kinematics and dynamics of the epistemic states of the subject.

Keywords:   modeling, human beliefs, believing, probabilistic models, truth value, principal-agent model, affect, cognition, epistemic states
