I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to be better informed or less fooled! Even as someone who has had more 'math-heavy' probability classes at university, I enjoyed reading this book, because it enabled me to take a step back from the formulas.

Feb 10, Lulu marked it as to-read Shelves: his-analytic-philosophy Level 2: epistemology. Feb 19, Rob Lucas rated it really liked it. Informative and easily accessible due to the writing style and clever examples, this is an essential introduction to the philosophy behind probability.

Feb 26, Erik rated it liked it. Clear survey of inductive logic for undergrads. I'm a little disappointed about the philosophical content, but he does give some advanced readings at the end of each chapter where the actual debate over what this stuff means is mentioned. Hacking leaves the philosophy alone and sticks to the nuts and bolts of the subject and mastering simple exercises. There is a little vagueness about the law of large numbers that could be handled by looking at a random walk Feynman Lectures on Physics Vol 1!!

Took a lot of time to finish this with long breaks but it was indeed an engaging text.

One of Ian Hacking's earliest publications, this book showcases his early ideas on the central concepts and questions surrounding statistical reasoning. He explores the basic principles of statistical reasoning and tests them, both at a philosophical level and in terms of their practical consequences for statisticians. Presented in a fresh twenty-first-century series livery, and including a specially commissioned preface written by Jan-Willem Romeijn, illuminating its enduring importance and relevance to philosophical enquiry, Hacking's influential and original work has been revived for a new generation of readers.

This textbook is for introductory philosophy courses on probability and inductive logic. The book assumes no deductive logic. In fact almost no formal background is presumed, only very simple high school algebra. Several well known predecessors inspired and shaped this book. Both texts are widely used with good reason—they are excellent.

An inductive logic is a logic of evidential support. In a deductive logic, the premises of a valid deductive argument logically entail the conclusion, where logical entailment means that every logically possible state of affairs that makes the premises true must make the conclusion true as well. Thus, the premises of a valid deductive argument provide total support for the conclusion. An inductive logic extends this idea to weaker arguments. In a good inductive argument, the truth of the premises provides some degree of support for the truth of the conclusion, where this degree-of-support might be measured via some numerical scale. By analogy with the notion of deductive entailment, the notion of inductive degree-of-support might mean something like this: among the logically possible states of affairs that make the premises true, the conclusion must be true in at least proportion r of them—where r is some numerical measure of the support strength. If a logic of good inductive arguments is to be of any real value, the measure of support it articulates should be up to the task.
