Bayes, Hume, Price, and Miracles

In Richard Swinburne (ed.), Bayes’s Theorem. Oxford University Press 91--110 (2002)
Abstract
This chapter discusses the Bayesian analysis of miracles. It is set in the context of the eighteenth-century debate on miracles. The discussion is focused on the probable response of Thomas Bayes to David Hume's celebrated argument against miracles. The chapter presents the claim that the criticisms Richard Price made against Hume's argument against miracles were largely solid.
