Let us consider the simplest case first, a fully deterministic plan: the plan has just one possible outcome, about which the planner is absolutely certain. The merit of the plan is then to be determined by the expected utility of this outcome alone. Consider the following example: a judge is tasked with deciding whether a convicted criminal should be granted parole, and the judge is absolutely certain that the convict has now essentially changed and will no longer commit any serious crime. The judge thus believes that the only relevant outcome of his decision will be a very positive one: the convicted person will be free again and will probably find a job and contribute to supporting the family.

Such beliefs—when combined with other beliefs the agent already possesses, and when they go into a logical process (such as deduction, induction, defeasible reasoning, and probability calculus)—lead to the formation of further beliefs. The set of beliefs one possesses, however, does not consist mostly or even mainly of beliefs one constructs, directly or indirectly, out of one’s own perceptions, according to some pattern of logical reasoning. It also includes inputs provided by the built-in cognitive modules of which our mind consists, modules for language, for building three-dimensional representations out of perception, for recognising faces, for making analogies, for inventing hypotheses and theories, for detecting other people’s attitudes and the rules they are following, etc.
