Interpreting Probability: Controversies and Developments in the Early
Twentieth Century (Cambridge Studies in Probability, Induction and
Decision Theory) by David Howie




Publisher: Cambridge University Press; 1 edition (September 3, 2007) | ISBN: 0521037549 | Pages: 276 | PDF | 1.26 MB

abstract:
This book is a study of the concept of probability as it has been used
and applied across a number of scientific disciplines from genetics to
geophysics. Probability has a dual aspect: sometimes it is a numerical
ratio; sometimes, in the Bayesian interpretation, a degree of belief.
David Howie examines probabilistic theories of scientific knowledge, and
asks how, despite being adopted by many scientists and statisticians in
the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Bayesianism was discredited as
a theory of scientific inference during the 1920s and 1930s.
