Nomic Probability and the Foundations of Induction

John L. Pollock

In this book Pollock examines the subject of probabilistic reasoning, making general philosophical sense of objective probabilities and exploring their relationship to the problem of induction. His main claim is that the fundamental notion of probability is nomic -- that is, it involves the notion of natural law, valid across all possible worlds.
