  • Predictive Simplicityby George J. Klir

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The book attempts to develop an account of simplicity in terms of testability, and to use this account to provide an adequate characterization of induction, one immune to the class of problems suggested by Nelson Goodman.

  • The Great Philosophers: Russellby Ray Monk

    Orion 2011; US$ 8.14

    Bertrand Russell 1872-1970 Bertrand Russell discovered mathematics at the age of eleven. It was, he recalled, a transporting experience: ?as dazzling as first love.?
