AGREEING TO DISAGREE: THE NON-PROBABILISTIC CASE

Abstract: A non-probabilistic generalization of Aumann's (1976) agreement theorem is proved. Early attempts at such a theorem were based on a version of the sure-thing principle which assumes an intrapersonal-interstate comparison of knowledge. But such comparisons are impossible in partition structures. The theorem proved here is based on a new version of the sure-thing principle that makes an interpersonal-intrastate comparison of knowledge.<http://www.tau.ac.il/~samet/papers/generalized-agreement-theorem.pdf>
