I'm a PhD candidate from The Philosophy Department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I use formal theories, such as decision theory, game theory, probability theory, modal logic, computation theory, learning theory, and connectionism, to describe the metaphysics of action. The resultant logic of action shall empower us to understand the failure forms of right acts - be they immoral, or imprudent.
