Man, it was claimed, was a citizen of the world who should either discipline himself and purify his individual soul (Stoics) or slip through life unobtrusively by cutting down the possible sources of misery (Epicureans). There are modern attempts to address this issue, one of the more interesting being Alasdair MacIntyre’s (1984) attempt to understand humans as social beings and partly derive the contents of a good life from the social practices in which humans are embedded; but this remains a difficult issue for perfectionists.

That is, given a game in which one stands to win $n if a is true, one will pay up to $pn to play the game; equivalently, if one will pay up to $m to play a game in which one stands to win $n if a is true, one’s subjective probability for a must be m/n.

How, then, does Strawson reconcile these apparently conflicting aspects of his thought? But the term mathematics, as Renouvier used it, was restricted to arithmetic, and he derived the nature of numbers exclusively from the cardinal numbers.
