Poker, Probability, and Everyday Life

Lecture no. 18 from the course: The Philosopher's Toolkit: How to Be the Most Rational Person in Any Room

Poker, Probability, and Everyday Life

Taught by Professor Patrick Grim | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Life is filled with chance, and unfortunately it’s not as easy to navigate as counting face cards. This survey of probability will allow you to deal with chance more rationally. You’ll study the law of large numbers, how to calculate the probability of one or more events, and the gambler’s fallacy that keeps casinos in business.
