I understand that you want to limit the content of your paper to certain specific areas.However,the core of the TP (chapters 15,17,20 and 22) is Keynes’s interval estimate aproach to probability using upper and lower bounds ,instead of precise numerical answers,that Keynes derived from Boole.All of Part III of the TP is based on Keynes’s version of Boole’s Problem X.

Similarly,Keynes’s interest in Chebyshev’s Inequality is actually due to his decision theoretic criterion to minimize risk( Least Risk ) rule from chapter 26 which is the first exposition of a safety first rule in history .Roy’s safety first rule also requires the use of Chebyshev’s Inequality.

I kept that in mind and was surprised to see in your blog that most of the book was philosophical and have very little technical matter on probability.

Anyway, it i interesting to read your comments about the book, even if I can’t fully understand them.
