The Department of Logic & Philosophy of Science presents

"Topics in Inductive Logic"
A two-day workshop

March 19-20, 2015
9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Social & Behavioral Sciences Gateway, Room 1517

Inductive logic was a research program started by Rudolf Carnap in the 1940s and involves the philosophical and mathematical analysis of inductive inference. It has a close connection to the Bayes-Laplace tradition in probability theory and statistics. While inductive logic has largely disappeared from the radar of mainstream philosophy ofscience, progress has been made in various fields that are related to inductive logic. The aim of this workshop is to discuss some of these new developments.
