    About The Logical Leap. A groundbreaking solution to the problem of induction, based on Ayn Rand’s theory of concepts. Inspired by and expanding on a series of lectures presented by Leonard Peikoff, David Harriman presents a fascinating answer to the problem of induction-the epistemological question of how we can know the truth of inductive generalizations. Our First Proof By Induction Theorem: The sum of the first n positive natural numbers is n(n + 1)/2. Proof: By induction. Let P(n) be “the sum of the first n positive natural numbers is n(n + 1) / 2.” We show that P(n) is true for all natural numbers n. For our base case, we .

    Popper was born in in Vienna to a prosperous Jewish family who had converted to Lutheran Christianity. He took a doctorate in at the Faculty of Philosophy in his home city, and, in , while working as a schoolteacher, wrote this, his first book - Logik der Forschung (The Logic of Scientific Discovery).In it he criticises the customary ways of determining scientific truth; psychologism. Problem of induction, problem of justifying the inductive inference from the observed to the unobserved. It was given its classic formulation by the Scottish philosopher David Hume (–76), who noted that all such inferences rely, directly or indirectly, on the rationally unfounded premise that.

    The current book, translated for the first time into English in its entirety, shows Al-Sadr’s impressive mastery of the philosophical traditions, both Western and Islamic. This work fills, in Sadr’s own words, a year gap in logic and philosophy and promises to usher in a new era of debate over the long-standing problem of induction. Popper's book Objective Knowledge—whose first chapter is devoted to the problem of induction—opens, "I think I have solved a major philosophical problem: the problem of induction". In Popper's schema, enumerative induction is "a kind of optical illusion" cast by the steps of conjecture and refutation during a problem shift.

Inductive logic has the reputation that it is a formal tool of narrowly empiricist methodology. Although induction was discussed already by Aristotle, his account was intimately connected to concept formation (see [Hintikka, ; Niiniluoto, /95]).The role of induction in science was emphasized.

It should go without saying that the book is a classic in philosophic epistemology--perhaps the most important such work to 5/5(3). Index Term— Scientific reasoning, induction, deduction, problem of induction I. INTRODUCTION Reasoning or argumentation is a process to look for reasons.

Reasoning uses arguments which are sets of statements or propositions each consists of premises and conclusion. Conclusions are derived from the statements (premises). Logic, however, is more than just a good strong hunch that a conclusion is correct. The definition of logical validity demands that if your premises are true, the conclusion is also true.

Because induction falls short of this standard, it’s considered the great white elephant of both science and philosophy: It looks like it may work, but in. Pure inductive logic is the study of rational probability treated as a branch of mathematical logic. This monograph, the first devoted to this approach, brings together the key results from the past seventy years plus the main contributions of the authors and their collaborators over the last decade to present a comprehensive account of the discipline within a single unified context.

A Logical Introduction to Probability and Induction is a textbook on the mathematics of the probability calculus and its applications in the mathematical side, the textbook introduces these parts of logic and set theory that are needed for a precise formulation of the probability calculus.

On the philosophical side, the main focus is on the problem of induction and its reception. Grue and bleen are examples of logical predicates coined by Nelson Goodman in Fact, Fiction, and Forecast to illustrate the "new riddle of induction" – a successor to Hume's original predicates are unusual because their application is time-dependent; many have tried to solve the new riddle on those terms, but Hilary Putnam and others have argued such time-dependency depends on.and ) (See Problem of Induction).

The contemporary idea of inductive logic (as a general, logical theory of argument evaluation) did not begin to appear in a mature form until the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
