  • The Logic of Statistical Inference.

    The Logic of Statistical Inference.
    In this book Ian Hacking discusses the patterns of a statistical inference from a philosophical logician. The statistical contrast is tied to current problems in statistics, and it has avoided abstract systems because the idea is too young and unstable to make them relatable and efficient. The problem of the foundation of statistics is to state a set of principles which equal the validity of all correct statistical inference, and which do not imply that any faked inference is valid.

  • The Emergence of Probability

    The Emergence of Probability
    Probability has two aspects. It is connected with the degree of belief warranted by evidence, and it is connected with the tendency, displayed by some chance devices, to produce stable relative frequencies. It is plausible to suppose that inference from statistics evolved slowly because there was few data. The transformations that made it possible for probability concepts to emerge have constrained all subsequent development of probability theory.

  • Why Does Language Matter to Philosophy?

    Why Does Language Matter to Philosophy?
    Ian Hacking describes two theses, Philosophical Thesis and the Historical Thesis. According to Hacking, people of the seventeenth century knew ideas, where people of the twentieth century know sentences. According to the Historical Thesis, there have been three major philosophical epochs since the seventeenth century, The Heyday of Ideas, The Heyday of Meanings, and The Heyday of Sentences.

    Rewriting the Soul: Multiple Personality and the Sciences of Memory
    Hacking talks about how those people with MPD have looked into its reality over time and describes the concepts that developed through those inquiries. Hacking offers his own understanding of how these concepts have emerged and their impact on contemporary understandings of psychology.
