Wayne Myrvold


I am a philosopher of science, with emphasis on philosophy of physics. Much of my work has focused on the uses of probability in its various guises in science. This is the topic of by forthcoming book, Beyond Chance and Credence, in which I argue that the familiar dichotomy of two senses of “probability”—degree of belief, or credence, and physical chance—is too restrictive, and that there is an important role to play for a hybrid concept that combines both epistemic and physical considerations.

I am Subject Editor for Quantum Mechanics for the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

A continually updated list of my publications can be found on my Google Scholar page.
