Unsharp Choices

Most of my research focuses on a cluster of issues around incomplete preferences, unsharp or imprecise credences, and value incommensurability. I am working on a book manuscript, tentatively titled 'Unsharp Choices', which argues that these all involve vagueness, and that seeing them as such solves a number of puzzles.

(Forthcoming) 'What does incommensurability tell us about agency?' in Value Incommensurability: Ethics, Risk, and Decision-Making, edited by Henrik Andersson and Anders Herlitz.
