I left off my previous post with Hume’s problem of induction and a way forward coming from Uwe Saint-Mont.
For this post, I was originally planning to do a deep dive on the structure of logic and epistemic uncertainty to help frame future discussions. Fortunately Sean McLure has already done a better job than I could ever do in a recent series on his podcast, NonTrivial.
I highly recommend the listen as a primer for logical analysis to help understand where logic can be useful and where risk management becomes a better proxy, particularly in complex situations.
He spends a lot of time talking about inductive logic and Popperian falsification, which I think will become foundational as this probability series progresses.

Here is a link to Sean’s comprehensive list of logical fallacies: https://www.notes2tree.com/published_tree/?publish_tree=h7aGQYBbDd
Next post I’ll get back to probability starting with the Uwe Saint-Mont paper.
