    Marshall AbramsStrevens’ Tychomancy is an important book for philosophers and historians of science, and for scientists interested in the processes by which we reason about probabilities and frequencies, or interested in the evolution of our ability to do so. Strevens notes that we often have very good intuitions about probability and frequencies in physical processes, and asks how and why that is so. He describes several closely related reasoning strategies that would justify such intuitions. These “equidynamic” reasoning strategiesI will use (...)

    Is there a world beyond the senses? Can we perceive future events before they occur? Is it possible to communicate with others without need of our complex sensory-perceptual apparatus that has evolved over hundreds of millions of years? Can our minds/souls/personalities leave our bodies and operate with all the knowledge and information-processing ability that is normally dependent upon the physical brain? Do our personalities survive physical death?

    There are infinitely many possible hypotheses that are internally consistent and are compatible with a finite set of data. One of the criteria most often cited by the scientists when trying to decide between these "empirically equivalent" theories is simplicity. The principle of simplicity recommends that, in the absence of other overriding factors, the simplest theory compatible with the evidence should, at least on a prima facie basis, be preferred. This thesis is concerned with the problem of explicating the notion (...)

    Leuridan (2010) argued that mechanisms cannot provide a genuine alternative to laws of nature as a model of explanation in the sciences, and advocates Mitchell’s (1997) pragmatic account of laws. I first demonstrate that Leuridan gets the order of priority wrong between mechanisms, regularity, and laws, and then make some clarifying remarks about how laws and mechanisms relate to regularities. Mechanisms are not an explanatory alternative to regularities; they are an alternative to laws. The existence of stable regularities in nature (...)

    Inductive reasoning is fundamental to human cognition, yet it remains unclear how we develop this ability and what might influence our inductive choices. We created novel categories in which crucial factors such as domain and category structure were manipulated orthogonally. We trained 403 4–9-year-old children to categorise well-matched natural kind and artefact stimuli with either featural or relational category structure, followed by induction tasks. This wide age range allowed for the first full exploration of the developmental trajectory of inductive reasoning (...)

    The thesis which I develop in this study is that the notion of cause which is used in law cases is defined by the purpose and scope of the legal inquiry. I attempt to clarify this thesis by analyzing the account of legal causation discussed by H. L. A. Hart and Tony Honore in their work Causation in the Law. ;H. & H. contend that in legal cases causal issues are decided according to a common-sense notion of cause which is (...)

    We argue in favor of merely disjunctive effects, namely cases in which an event or fact, C, is not a cause of an effect, E1, and is also not a cause of a distinct effect, E2, and yet C is a cause of the disjunctive effect (E1 or E2). Disjunctive effects let us retain the additivity and the distributivity of causation. According to additivity, if C is a cause of E1 and C is a cause of E2, then C is (...)
