    Abstract

    Peter J. Lewis's in 'Quantum Sleeping Beauty' argues that accepting the Everettian interpretation of quantum mechanics requires you to be a 'halfer' about Sleeping Beauty. This paper will argue that Everettians do not have to be halfers. It is perfectly cogent to be both an Everettian and a thirder.
