Abstract

This work draws on the Supertask literature1 in order to better understand the conceptual and physical possibility of an infinite decision puzzle presented by Barrett and Arntzenius (1999, 2002). The first section presents the puzzle and two possible objections documented in the literature. The next section argues that cardinality and tracking considerations play a key role in understanding the puzzle. The work concludes with a discussion about some implications for the decision theory.
