An informal survey of main elements of our theory is
provided in Inductive Logic from the Point of View of Acceptance.
The intention of the paper is to motivate the more rigorous developments
that follow. (Many readers will be satisfied with just this overview.)
The mathematical basis for the theory is presented in
A Framework for Inductive Logic. Familiarity with the notation
and central concepts of symbolic logic is presupposed (but no more than
that). In particular, the reader will need to be familiar with terms
like structure, implication, and satisfies.
Rational schemes for hypothesis selection is the topic
of the third paper, Inductive Inquiry via Theory Revision. We
advance simple principles for the modification of hypotheses and show
that they suffice to guide successful scientific inquiry in a broad
range of cases.
The theory is generalized in Advanced Topics in Inductive
Logic. For example, it is shown how to conceptualize inductive success
in probabilistic rather than absolute terms.
