Abstract

We consider the minimal assumptions of temporal consistency that will allow us to make meaningful prior statements about our posterior judgements. These consistency conditions suggest a natural geometric interpretation of ‘prior inference’ which we develop and interpret. We discuss various applications of the geometric construction.
