    Here the author of How to Solve It explains how to become a "good guesser." Marked by G. Polya's simple, energetic prose and use of clever examples from a wide range of human activities, this two-volume work explores techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by analogy, and the role they play in the most rigorous of deductive disciplines.

    Preliminary Remarks on a Logic of Plausible Inference.G. Pólya - 1949 - Dialectica 3 (1‐2):28-35.
    It is shown by examples that inductive procedures which are commonly noticed only in the experimental sciences, are heuristically applicable also to purely mathematical questions. Similar processes are pointed out in inventive and everyday reasoning. A simple pattern of plausible inference is formulated and the bearing of these remarks on the current philosophical discussion of probability is hinted at. ‐ G. P.
