ABSTRACT. What can you infer from observations about your own location in the world? How should you distribute your credence when you are uncertain about which location is yours? This paper uses a series of thought experiment to explore three alternative models for how to reason about when self-locating belief is involved. Each of these models yields unexpected paradoxical results.
