VOL. 2 | 2008 Probability theory and its models

Abstract

This paper argues for the status of formal probability theory as a mathematical, rather than a scientific, theory. David Freedman and Philip Stark’s concept of model based probabilities is examined and is used as a bridge between the formal theory and applications.
