This talk is based on a paper by Sandra Dreisbach (PhD, Philosophy, UC Santa Cruz 2012) and Daniel Guevara. It is a critical assessment of Kahneman and Tversky’s Nobel Prize winning Prospect Theory – especially their so-called Asian Disease Problem – and its bearing on certain important issues in traditional ethical theory.
