    Processes Of Inference

    John H. Holland, Keith J. Holyoak, Richard E. Nisbett, and Paul Thagard

    Two psychologists, a computer scientist, and a philosopher have collaborated to present a framework for understanding processes of inductive reasoning and learning in organisms and machines. Theirs is the first major effort to bring the ideas of several disciplines to bear on a subject that has been a topic of investigation since the time of Socrates. The result is an integrated account that treats problem solving and induction in terms of rule­based mental models.

    Induction is included in the Computational Models of Cognition and Perception Series.

    A Bradford Book.
