Title: Decision Theory and Deep Ignorance
Authors: Isaacs, Yoaav Isaacs

Publisher: Princeton, NJ : Princeton University
Abstract: Decision theory is about making choices under conditions of uncertainty. I argue that traditional decision theories overlook uncertainty about oneself––that they offer inadequate guidance to agents lacking self-knowledge. I develop alternative theories that do better.
