讲题:Some Problems with Comparative Valuing

时间:2021.4.14 (Wed.) 15:10-17:00

地点:文学院412研讨室


Abstract: The aim of this talk is to expose a new kind of irrational valuing structure, which I shall call self-defeating comparative valuing (SDCV). While on a par with other irrational valuing structures such as temporal discounting and intransitive preferences, SDCV has not yet been noticed in the literature. In this talk, I will first consider procrastination and other irrational choices in real life so as to illustrate the structure of SDCV. I will then examine the rational problems of SDCV and thereby propose some new rational principles governing our valuing. Finally, I will discuss some implications of SDCV on our understanding of value and rational choice.
