This volume is number ten in the eleven volume Handbook of the History, of Logic. It covers the development of inductive logic from Aristotle to Carnap, Hintikka and modern Bayesianism and learning theory. A special Feature of this volume is that it stresses the close interaction between science and philosophy. This close intimacy can also be seen in the contemporary work on inductive logic, broadly construed, that this handbook also covers. Written by leading researchers in the field, both this volume and the Handbook as a whole are definitive reference tools for senior undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in the history of logic, the history of philosophy, and any discipline, such as mathematics, computer science, artificial intelligence, and psychology, for whom the historical background of her or his work is a salient consideration.
