(Risk, Uncertainty and Profit, , pg. 19) For Knight, measuring uncertainty meant not only measuring the probability of its occurrence but also the severity of its consequences or economic impact, e.g. measurable risk of loss versus unmeasurable uncertainty consequences what Knight referred to as "the imperfection of knowledge". Formal epistemology, as opposed to mainstream epistemology (Hendricks ), is epistemology done in a formal way, that is, by employing tools from logic and mathematics. The goal of this entry is to give the reader an overview of the formal tools available to epistemologists for the representation of belief.

A few corrections of obvious typos were made for this website edition. Economist Frank H. Knight (&#X;) is commonly credited with defining the distinction between decisions under risk (known chance) and decisions under uncertainty (unmeasurable probability) in his book Risk, Uncertainty and Profit.A closer reading of Knight () reveals a host of psychological insights beyond this risk-uncertainty.

Risk aversion is generally assumed in economic analyses of decision under uncertainty. However, risk-seeking choices are consistently observed in two classes of decision problems. First, people often prefer a small probability of winning a large prize over the expected value of that by:   Uncertainty about a possible future threat disrupts our ability to avoid it or to mitigate its negative impact and thus results in anxiety.

Measurement uncertainty analysis is a formal process of identifying and quantifying possible errors and combining the results to obtain an estimate of the total uncertainty of a measurement [61].

An inherent part of this process is understanding the potential problems that can affect the results of any given PV performance measurement.

Probability is our guide. when we think and act in conditions of uncertainty. and uncertainty is ubiquitous —Bruno de Finetti (, p ). Introduction.

Risk involves uncertainty about the effects/implications of an activity with respect to something that humans value (such as health, well-being, wealth, property or the environment), often focusing on negative, undesirable consequences.

This paper introduces a formal definition and an experimental measurement of the concept of cognitive uncertainty: people's subjective uncertainty about what the optimal action is. This concept allows us to bring together and partially explain a set of behavioral anomalies identified across four distinct domains of decision-making: choice under risk, choice.

Abstract: We develop a new version of prospect theory that employs cumulative rather than separable decision weights and extends the theory in several respects.

This version, called cumulative prospect theory, applies to uncertain as well as to risky prospects with any number of outcomes, and it allows different weighting functions for gains. In summary, cognitive uncertainty is a measurable concept that allows us to bring together, and partially explain, seemingly-unconnected anomalies from decision tasks on choice under risk and ambiguity, belief updating, and survey expectations.

Cumulative representation of uncertainty”, Journal of Risk and uncertainty 5(4): –   All science has uncertainty. Unless that uncertainty is communicated effectively, decision makers may put too much or too little faith in it. The information that needs to be communicated depends on the decisions that people face.
