Minor point on layout. GGQ are cited for the quote within a quote, but should be for the whole thing, Feel free to delete after fixing

Thanks for alerting me to this. Do you think the corrected version works?

Very interisting post, I look forward to reading GGQ. As for the descriptive/normative divide and Ellsberg's clear aim to deal with normative issues, his doctoral thesis has entire sections dedicated to the issue, included one prefiguring the so-called alfaMEU decision rule of Ghilardato-Marinacci-Mascheroni. Ellsberg's thesis was published only as late as 2001: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&q=ellsberg+decision
A paper discussing normative issues in Ellsberg and current decision theory is available here: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3220431
