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 rule­based mental models.

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

A Bradford Book.

About the Author:

John Holland is Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Review:

A broad, sweeping inquiry of what concepts are, what learning is, and how it can take place at all.... Induction is a deep synthesis of epistemology, evolution and computation. This path-breaking treatise will undoubtedly come to be recognized as a major step toward an interdisciplinary explanation of mentality.

(Douglas Hofstadter)
