Partition-theorems for causal decision theories

Philosophy of Science 56 (1):70-93 (1989)
Two partition-theorems are proved for a particular causal decision theory. One is restricted to a certain kind of partition of circumstances, and analyzes the utility of an option in terms of its utilities in conjunction with circumstances in this partition. The other analyzes an option's utility in terms of its utilities conditional on circumstances and is quite unrestricted. While the first form seems more useful for applications, the second form may be of theoretical importance in foundational exercises. Comparisons are made with theorems of Richard Jeffrey, Brad Armendt, and Peter Fishburn
