Working paper: “Bayesianism and the Common Prior Assumption in Game Theory”

I have a new working paper on a slightly esoteric subject, at least for those unfamiliar with decision theory and game theory: “Bayesianism and the Common Prior Assumption in Game Theory: Toward a Theory of Social Interactions“. If everything goes well, I should present this paper at the 3rd Economic Philosophy Conference which will be held in June at Aix-en-Provence. It is organized by Aix-Marseille University and the GREQAM, but one of the co-organizer is my colleague (and office neighbor) from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne Jean-Sébastien Gharbi.

This gives me a good excuse for a slight digression: Jean-Sébastien and myself are trying hard to develop economic philosophy at Reims, and though we are currently small in number (hopefully, not for too long!), there has been some momentum shift recently. We have welcome well-known economic methodologist John Davis last year as a visiting professor and we have a significant  numbers  of recent publications in top-journals in economic philosophy and the history of economic thought (Economics and Philosophy, Journal of Economic Methodology, Revue de philosophie économique, European Journal of the History of Economic Thought, Journal of the History of Economic Thought). This is only beginning, or I hope so!
