trying to find a probability author/view that I can jive well with. I thought Mlodinow might work but then he’s too ‘certain’. So i thought about “on being certain” and Pigliucci also. gpt4 processed it ok. I’ll work wiht this line some more.
“Massimo Pigliucci, while not directly focused on the field of probability (519 DDC), often emphasizes critical thinking, philosophy, and scientific skepticism in his works. If you are looking for a balance between Mlodinow’s approach to certainty and Burton’s perspective on belief, you might want to consider reading books by both authors and incorporating Pigliucci’s work on critical thinking.
For instance, you could read Mlodinow’s “The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives” to gain a basic understanding of probability and randomness, while keeping in mind Burton’s “On Being Certain: Believing You Are Right Even When You’re Not” to explore the psychology of belief and certainty. Simultaneously, you could refer to Pigliucci’s “How to Be a Stoic: Using Ancient Philosophy to Live a Modern Life” or “Nonsense on Stilts: How to Tell Science from Bunk” to develop a critical thinking approach when analyzing the concepts presented in the other two books.
This combination of works could provide a more balanced perspective on probability and belief while aligning with your INFP personality and appreciation for critical thinking.”
