9780262610636: The Probabilistic Revolution: Ideas in the Sciences (MIT Press) (Volume 2)

Winner in the category of Psychology in the 1987 Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc.

This monumental work traces the rise, the transformation, and the diffusion of probabilistic and statistical thinking in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The contributors - scientists, historians, and philosophers of science from eight countries make it possible for readers trained in many disciplines to see why the probabilistic revolution has been so complete and so successful.

Lorenz KrA¼ger, and Michael Heidelberger are philosophers of science at Gottingen University. Lorraine J. Daston is a historian at Brandeis University. Gerd Gigerenzer is a psychologist at the University of Constance, and Mary S. Morgan is an economist at York University.

About the Author:

Lorenz Krüger is a philosopher of science at Göttingen University.

Review:

I can think of no other comparable work that comes even close to covering the same important material in the history of science and philosophy.

(Patrick Suppes, Stanford University)

These two volumes come close to the best that can be achieved on the topics and the period covered. They contain a mine of historical and philosophical material. You can dip in almost anywhere and be interested.

(Nature)
