Faculty Fellowship at Murphy Institute

From late August 2014 to April 2015, I'll be a Faculty Fellow at Tulane's Murphy Institute! This will be an awesome opportunity to meet people doing cool stuff in ethics.

If you want me to come by and give a talk at your place in the US or Canada when I'm not busy Fellowing it up in New Orleans, let me know and I'll try to make it happen.

(The Murphy Institute, as far as I know, has no connection with Murphy's Irish Stout.)

No form of decision theory suggests biting the Predictor's ear

It'd be neat to present Mike Tyson, Manny Pacquiao, and Floyd Mayweather with Newcomb's problem. If Tyson didn't disqualify himself by biting the lid off the opaque box, we might discover that one boxer is a one-boxer and two boxers are two-boxers.
