First separate edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. 'It is not easy to disentangle measurement theory and decision theory because the measurement of subjective probability and utility has been such a central part of decision theory. The separation that I make will therefore be somewhat arbitrary. My really serious interest in psychology began with experimental research on decision theory in collaboration with my philosophical colleague Donald Davidson and a graduate student in psychology at that time, Sidney Siegel. Davidson and I had begun collaborative work with McKinsey in 1953 on the theory of value and also on utility theory. We continued this work after McKinsey s death, and it is reflected in Davidson, McKinsey, and Suppes (1955a) and in the joint article with Davidson (1956c) on the finitistic axiomatization of subjective probability and utility' (Suppes' autobiography; please ask for online citation). 'For reasons I can't remember in detail now, rather early Don, the logician J. C. C. McKinsey, who had also joined the department in 1951, and I began discussing the theory of value in philosophy, concurrently with studying the theory of expected utility in game theory and economics. This led to our first joint publication: Davidson, McKinsey and Suppes, 'Outline of a formal theory of value, I' (1955). The writing was actually completed in 1953, shortly after McKinsey's death in that year' (Suppes, 'Memories of Donald Davidson', in M.C. Galavotti, ed., Cambridge and Vienna Frank P. Ramsey and the Vienna Circle, 2006, pp. 251-2). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 21092
