  • Information and Inferenceby Jaakko Hintikka; Patrick Suppes

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 201.86

    In the last 25 years, the concept of information has played a crucial role in communication theory, so much so that the terms information theory and communication theory are sometimes used almost interchangeably. It seems to us, however, that the notion of information is also destined to render valuable services to the student of induction and probability,... more...

  • Nominalistic Systemsby Rolf A. Eberle

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    1. 1. PROGRAM It will be our aim to reconstruct, with precision, certain views which have been traditionally associated with nominalism and to investigate problems arising from these views in the construction of interpreted formal systems. Several such systems are developed in accordance with the demand that the sentences of a system which is acceptable... more...

  • Biology, History, and Natural Philosophyby A. D. Breck

    Springer US 2012; US$ 81.80

    In a world that peers over the brink of disaster more often than not it is difficul t to find specific assignments for the scholarly community. One speaks of peace and brotherhood only to realize that for many the only real hope of making a contribution may seem to be in a field of scientific specialization seemingly irrelevant to social causes and... more...

  • Form and Strategy in Scienceby J.R. Gregg; F.T.C. Harris

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    Men of science are sometimes mistrustful of or at least impatient with philosophy. One of them, himself no stranger to hard thought, was one day heard to comment on his colleagues in another faculty and on their propensity to indulge in what he called "all this nonsense about thinking". Against this may perhaps be set a meeting of philosophers who... more...

  • Biology, History, and Natural Philosophyby Allan D. Breck

    Springer US 2012; US$ 81.80

    In a world that peers over the brink of disaster more often than not it is difficult to find specific assignments for the scholarly community.

  • Essays in Philosophy and Its Historyby Wilfrid Sellars

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 211.43

    In pulling these essays together for inclusion in one volume I do not believe that I have done them violence. Since they originally appeared at different times and places they constitute a scattered object. Never­ theless, to the author's eye they have unities of theme and development which, if they fail to give them the true identity of the book,... more...

  • Science is Godby D. F. Horrobin

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.80

    I am becoming increasingly disturbed by the lack of under­ standing of science revealed by politicians, industrialists and the general public. I am also concerned about the widespread mis­ use of the word "scientific" which is more and more being used in situations where it is quite inappropriate. As a result, in some circumstances gross overestimates... more...
