No regrets, or: Edith piaf revamps decision theory

Erkenntnis 68 (2):277-297 (2008)
Abstract
I argue that standard decision theories, namely causal decision theory and evidential decision theory, both are unsatisfactory. I devise a new decision theory, from which, under certain conditions, standard game theory can be derived.
