Abstract: This talk explores to what extent the core tenets of Bayesian epistemology, such as probabilism, conditionalization, and chance-credence principles, need reformulation in the quantum setting, and if so, what those reformulations look like. The talk will touch on debates about the status of quantum probability theory and its relationship to the measurement problem, as well as debates concerning the justification of Bayesian norms.
