Abstract

One objection many philosophers have raised to Bayesianism is the claim that it is implausible that degrees of belief could be so finely grained as to adequately be represented by precise real numbers. I will consider analogies to other numerical quantities and use them to argue that the precision implicit in Bayesianism is not in fact unrealistic.
