A very nice introduction to the subjectivist view of the bayesian school of statistics. It is really nothing more than probability theory with a flavor of good old british empiricism. The lectures are mostly in dialogue form, they are interesting, engaging and may be useful for anyone interested in philosophy, statistics, artificial intelligence, logic, etc. De Finetti was one of the greatest minds of the XXth century.
