On the left-hand side, Keynes is classified who adheres to the conviction that probabilities are a form of knowledge. If probabilities can be given, these are derived in an objective and logical manner. Given the evidence, no matter the person who holds this belief, the same probabilities must be derived. However, if no such probability statement of the form Pe ( ω, k ), with ω describing the situation and k the possible outcome, can be given, uncertainty prevails. Hence, uncertainty can never be captured by numerical probabilities.

The German unification for example, could have been seen as contingent, although it was unique. 9 The main aspect of Chapter VIII is therefore contingency (Schmidt 1996, Davidson 2010). In both readings, uncertainty belongs to a group which is not insurable because it is not measurable. This can be due to the uniqueness brought forward in Chapter VII, or it is in the reading of Chapter VIII not appointed to be contingent (Schmidt 1996:69). 8 9 Although Knight labels the third concept also probability due to the “established linguistic usage” (Knight 1921:231), but insisting on the difference against the others.

1 Yet, in most decision problems neither of these situations occur. Hence, there is no chance of achieving a probability judgment. For such situations only an estimate can be given. This might be due to several reasons. To Knight (1921) the two main reasons why probability relations can not be given are due to measurement problems and due to the fact that some events are so unique that they are not even held to be contingent before they actually occur. 2 Despite the findings of Knight (1921) and other to cope with uncertainty, modern macroeconomics utilize well defined probability distributions, which are characterized by a known mean as well as a known variance.
