♥ Book Title : Strategies in Markets for Experience and Credence Goods
☯ Full Synopsis : "The quality and characteristics of industrial and consumption goods are often not revealed until after consumption. However, the decision to buy these products must be made before buying. Many strategies and instruments for signalling and screening have been developed in the economic world in order to overcome potential market failure due to insufficient quality detection. In many situations, efficient incentives and quality revelation are given to the market players by contracts that structure the process and payments of the transaction."Article| Men-Andri Benz| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Causation, Chance and Credence
☯ Full Synopsis : "The papers collected here are, with three exceptions, those presented at a conference on probability and causation held at the University of California at Irvine on July 15-19, 1985. The exceptions are that David Freedman and Abner Shimony were not able to contribute the papers that they presented to this volume, and that Clark Glymour who was not able to attend the conference did contribute a paper. We would like to thank the National Science Foundation and the School of Humanities of the University of California at Irvine for generous support. WILLIAM HARPER University of Western Ontario BRIAN SKYRMS University of California at Irvine VII INTRODUCTION TO CAUSATION, CHANCE, AND CREDENCE The search for causes is so central to science that it has sometimes been taken as the defining attribute of the scientific enterprise. Yet even after twenty-five centuries of philosophical analysis the meaning of "cause" is still a matter of controversy, among scientists as well as philosophers. Part of the problem is that the servicable concepts of causation built out of Necessity, Sufficiency, Locality, and Temporal Precedence were constructed for a deterministic world-view which has been obsolete since the advent of quantum theory. A physically credible theory of causation must be, at basis, statistical. And statistical analyses of caus ation may be of interest even when an underlying deterministic theory is assumed, as in classical statistical mechanics."Article| B. Skyrms| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Accuracy and the Laws of Credence
☯ Full Synopsis : "Richard Pettigrew offers an extended investigation into a particular way of justifying the rational principles that govern our credences (or degrees of belief). The main principles that he justifies are the central tenets of Bayesian epistemology, though many other related principles are discussed along the way. Pettigrew looks to decision theory in order to ground his argument. He treats an agent's credences as if they were a choice she makes between differentoptions, gives an account of the purely epistemic utility enjoyed by different sets of credences, and then appeals to the principles of decision theory to show that, when epistemic utility is measured inthis way, the credences that violate the principles listed above are ruled out as irrational. The account of epistemic utility set out here is the veritist's: the sole fundamental source of epistemic utility for credences is their accuracy. Thus, Pettigrew conducts an investigation in the version of epistemic utility theory known as accuracy-first epistemology."Article| Richard Pettigrew| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Credence, the sequel to Misdirection, is the second novel in a series of international crime thrillers by Martin Link. Suddenly, 'SITE LOCKDOWN' flashes on every single screen in GCHQ. "Alpha team leader. Can you see what they're up to?" "No." There's a brief pause. What comes next is totally unexpected. I can't hear anything but I feel a sudden, ferocious earache, an incapacitating headache and nausea, and I crumple to the floor. In this James-Bond-meets-real-world thriller, MI5 man Lucas Norton once again finds himself caught up in a high-stakes assault when a sniper in a powerboat takes a pot-shot at his family. Could it be linked to the daring raid carried out at GCHQ, where thieves evade the world's tightest security to steal top secret ultra-high-tech equipment from under his nose? Lucas's first case (Misdirection) culminated in him, and the FBI, losing $48m from an international heist. Now he and his crack team over at GCHQ have only a few days to figure out what the stolen tech can do and where the thieves have gone. It's a search that takes them from London's secret underground railway to a disused WW2 bunker, the FBI's Black Hawk launch bay, the US Embassy and the very heart of MI5. Can Lucas's team stop a brilliantly executed plot to hold the populations of London and New York to ransom? Credence will have you trying to outsmart the world's most advanced intelligence services - and the criminals who are one step ahead of them."Article| Martin Link| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Credence Foundation (A Science Fiction Thriller)
☯ Full Synopsis : "In a not-so-distant future, the murder of a notorious neuroscientist threatens the closure of Credence, a federal corporation where the powerful minds of exceptional individuals—the Believers—are harnessed into mass beliefs capable of teleporting spaceships to the other side of the universe. To avoid the death of the colons on the outer outposts for lack of supplies, Detective Trumaine is only given three days to solve the case. However, because of the elusive nature of the murderer—a Believer and a telepath—the investigation proves more difficult than ever, and Trumaine faces disaster. When, desperate to catch the murderer, Trumaine agrees to enter the Feed—the very same medium the Believers unconsciously inhabit when building the mass belief—a third contender enters the arena, that messes up with painful events from his past. If it’s friend or foe, that remains to be seen. It's a science fiction novel of about 74,000 words."Article| Marco Guarda| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Credence
☯ Full Synopsis : "Written in the form of an annotated prose-poem, Credence quietly challenges the very possibility of "true belief" by submitting even the shards of narrative coherence in the poetry to further fracturing, until meaning itself becomes a blur of criss-crossing associations. Instead of leaving the reader with a sense of emptiness, however, Phillips' brilliant poem demonstrates how the very recognition of linguistic rupture can enrich meaning, can allow for a whole new range of possibilities of significance. Ultimately "credence" is reestablished, not for a belief in a univocal world but in a social construct of many voices and tongues."Article| Dennis Phillips| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Detective Danny Credence has a gold shield and some dubious morals. An insolent man in a profane society, the madness doesn't stop when he walks out the precinct doors. This first book in the series is driven as much by Danny's struggle to find his place in a society gone insane as by the cases he cracks under deep cover. But Credence is more than the tough, ruthless cop that he'd like you to think he is. In his heart and in his head he knows. The criminality of the world is only a symptom. What eats away at him is the deeper sickness of a society in which notoriety and self-exploitation are the cornerstones of success. This makes him the man that he is and drives him to do the things he does. All this comes to a boil when Credence finds out he's just been scratching the surface of human depravity. His latest assignment is about to drag him under, bringing him face to face with a new kind of evil. Every violent, wicked moment in his miserable life has been a buildup to this reckoning. A darkness he cannot defeat. The devil inside us all."Article| Michael Easton| Statement ..."
