Foundations of Probability with Applications by Patrick Suppes

Book Description

This is an important collection of essays dealing with the foundations of probability that will be of value to philosophers of science, mathematicians, statisticians, psychologists and educationalists. The collection falls into three parts. Part I comprises five essays on the axiomatic foundations of probability. Part II contains seven articles on probabilistic causality and quantum mechanics, with an emphasis on the existence of hidden variables. The third part consists of a single extended essay applying probabilistic theories of learning to practical questions of education: it incorporates extensive data analysis. Patrick Suppes is one of the world's foremost philosophers in the area of probability, and has made many contributions to both the theoretical and practical side of education. The statistician Mario Zanotti is a long-time collaborator.

Individual Differences by Patrick Suppes Individual Differences, Paperback (December 2013)

In 1894 John Dewey established his experimental laboratory school at the University of Chicago, with a focus on teaching each student according to their individual differences. This book examines various studies of computer-based and online instruction, with special attention paid to gifted students in mathematics, science, and engineering.

Reasoning, Rationality, and Probability by Patrick Suppes Reasoning, Rationality, and Probability, Paperback (April 2008)

Intends to broaden our concept of reasoning and rationality to allow for a more pluralistic and situational view of human thinking as a practical activity. This book argues that the search for strong theories should leave room for the construction of context-sensitive conceptual tools.

Geometrical, Threshold, and Probabilistic Representations by Patrick Suppes Geometrical, Threshold, and Probabilistic Representations, Paperback (January 2007)

All of the sciences have a need for quantitative measurement. This influential series established the formal foundations for measurement, justifying the assignment of numbers to objects in terms of their structural correspondence. 1989 edition.
