Nomic Probability and the Foundations of Induction Book Description:

In this text, John L. Pollock examines the subject of probabilistic reasoning, making general philosophical sense of objective probabilities and exploring their relationship to the problem of induction. His main claim is that the fundamental notion of probability is nomic - that is, it involves the notion of natural law, valid across all possible worlds.

Uncertainty pervades the real world and must therefore be addressed by every system that attempts to represent reality. The representation of uncertainty is a ma jor concern of philosophers, logicians, artificial intelligence
