I’m reading the History of Western Philosophy by Russell and am enjoying it so far, having a math and history background, but no prior knowledge of philosophy.
I’m not so far in, but one thing that stands out is many of the ideas from the ancient Greeks can be stated very simply in the language of probability theory, e.g. the idea that every process in life exhibits “balance” can be stated as having zero mean in a sense.
Now this isnt scientific at a but I have a hunch that many more philosophical ideas can be stated in probabilistic language. Is there any text where somebody does this?
Forgive me if this is a dumb question.
