Reversing 30 years of discussion: why causal decision theorists should one-box

Synthese 187 (1):95-122 (2012)
Abstract
The paper will show how one may rationalize one-boxing in Newcomb's problem and drinking the toxin in the Toxin puzzle within the confines of causal decision theory by ascending to so-called reflexive decision models which reflect how actions are caused by decision situations (beliefs, desires, and intentions) represented by ordinary unreflexive decision models
