My philosophical background

I read a little on Bayesian epistemology, a while back, and I was both impressed by it and really disappointed that it was not, being a 20th century invention, embedded throughout our philosophical culture. I've also come across paraconsistent logic, via Graham Priest's analysis of Buddhism, though that was just a chapter or two, and also quite some time ago.

My question

Has anyone studied it in relation to paraconsistent logics?

Explanation of my interest

You don't need to be able to pass logical reasoning puzzles to work out your certainty of your having missed the bus. Perhaps the two can fit together to model questions like that, though I may have misunderstood 'paraconsistency' there.

So I want to find out how the two might relate, especially as both are fairly new and how both may already be implicated in everyday reasoning (as I think it's claimed both are a means to model it even-though I can't find references).

Two less general questions:

  1. do they fit, can we use both at the same time? How?
  2. if they do, is that a good model of everyday reasoning?
