Probability theory is a key tool of the physical, mathematical, and social sciences, and is playing an increasingly important role in many areas of philosophy. This Handbook furthers the influence of philosophy on probability, and of probability on philosophy. Nearly forty articles present new insights into the intersection of these two fields.
