Induction: Processes Of Inference by John H. Holland, Keith J. Holyoak, Richard E. Nisbett, Paul Thagard

Two psychologists, a computer scientist, and a philosopher have collaborated to present a framework for understanding processes of inductive reasoning and learning in organisms and machines. Theirs is the first major effort to bring the ideas of several disciplines to bear on a subject that has been a topic of investigation since the time of Socrates. The result is an integrated account that treats problem solving and induction in terms of rule-based mental models.

Induction is included in the Computational Models of Cognition and Perception Series.

A Bradford Book.
