A new defence of probability discounting
This chapter argues that, for decisions under risk, Simon Caney's rights-based approach overgeneralises and that rights-based theories structurally face similar problems. It makes a new moral case for probability discounting on the grounds that moral responsibility for outcomes scales with credence in outcomes.
