Scientific reasoning : the Bayesian approach by Colin Howson( Book )

46 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new, fully updated, thoroughly revised, and substantially enlarged edition of Howson and Urbach's much-acclaimed account of scientific method from the Bayesian standpoint. Scientific Reasoning is both an introduction to probability theory and a philosophical commentary on the problems of scientific inference. The second edition includes chapter exercises, and extended material on such topics as regression analysis, distributions and densities, randomization, and conditionalization." "Confronting the controversial issues in induction and the confirmation of scientific theories, Howson and Urbach reject the "objectivist ideal" and the fashionable non-probabilistic standards of scientific worth, associated with such writers as Neyman and Pearson, Fisher, Popper, and Lakatos. Howson and Urbach contend that "scientific reasoning is reasoning in accordance with the calculus of probabilities", and (assuming little more advanced than elementary algebra) they give a concise introduction to this calculus." "The authors examine the way in which scientists actually appeal to probability arguments, and expound the 'classical' model of statistical inference, which they demonstrate to be full of flaws. They then present the Bayesian approach, showing that it avoids the difficulties of the classical system. Finally, they reply to all the major criticisms levelled against the Bayesian method, especially the charge that it is 'too subjective'."--BOOK JACKET

The Committee was established in September 1967 to study and make recommendations on Recommendation xxix and xxx of the Report of the President's Commission on the Patent System. Based on interviews with Patent Office officials, patent examiners and classifiers and a review of Patent Office studies and documents, the Committee concluded that the present Patent Office management is developing an efficient operation in spite of inadequate funding and other long-standing difficulties. Recommendations for the Patent Office involve: long-range planning to provide guidelines for Patent Office management; continuity in management and staff; additional funding; development of sophisticated management tools; a broad review of the form, content and effectiveness of the patent document; greater clarity in the patent application; extending the quality control program; development of a reclassification priority model; development of a research plan by the Research and Development Group; systems studies of the entire patent examining process; cooperative programs with outside workers in the field; development of plans for using patents in machine readable form; examination of all Department of Commerce technical information dissemination programs; and continuation of U.S. participation in international patent cooperation efforts.
