Monograph

Filosofia dei metodi induttivi e logica della ricerca

  • Maria Grazia Sandrini,

If in general the meaning of what we call "knowing" is closely bound up with the methodological tools used to this end, then those who wish to reflect adequately upon empirical knowledge must be in possession of at least the basic notions underlying the statistical inductive methods used in the experimentation and monitoring of empirical hypotheses.
This book addresses an argument that has been neglected to date, namely that of the logic of statistical methods of inductive inference. Correlation theory, significance tests, hypothesis tests and even the Bayesian approach are discussed with a view to highlighting their specific spheres of application, their limitations and the type of response that they are capable of providing within the framework of a more general discussion on the manifold dimensions of knowledge.

Maria Grazia Sandrini

University of Florence, Italy

Maria Grazia Sandrini is a lecturer in theoretical philosophy at the University of Florence.
Her research has been devoted to two principal areas: that of probability and inductive methodology, and that of the relationship between science and ethics. In both, and they intersect at more than one point, there is significant emphasis on the work of Rudolf Carnap.
