THE HYPOTHETICO-DEDUCTIVE METHOD. Confirmation and probability are the objects of much attention on the part of logical empiricists. In the first place, confirmation is connected with the ideal represented by the hypothetico-deductive (H-D) method, reflecting the idea that scientific knowledge results from the interplay of laws, advanced by way of hypotheses, and singular statements regarding.

‘Bayesian epistemology’ became an epistemological movement in the 20 th century, though its two main features can be traced back to the eponymous Reverend Thomas Bayes (c.

–61). Those two features are: (1) the introduction of a formal apparatus for inductive logic; (2) the introduction of a pragmatic self-defeat test (as illustrated by Dutch Book Arguments) for epistemic rationality.

Subjective Probability and the Dutch Book Argument. In Bayesian confirmation theory, a probability measure on a field of propositions is usually interpreted as an agent’s degree of belief function. There is disagreement about how broad the class of admissible probability measures is to be construed.

As a result of such developments, besides continuing to work on the issues which had always been on his mind, namely induction, confirmation, probability and the nature of scientific inference, Salmon became deeply interested in the philosophy of space and time, publishing the introductory book Space, Time, and Motion (a), which can be.

In essays based on his influential Dewey Lectures, Ayer addresses some of the most critical and controversial questions in epistemology and the philosophy of science, examining the nature of inductive reasoning and grappling with the issues that most concerned.

Abstract. That qualitative probability is as much a form of probability as is quantitative probability; and in what the difference considering the nature of probability, and its possible uses in and applications to the sciences, it is to be kept in mind that a fundamental distinction exists between what may be called the qualitative and quantitative notions of probability.
