Lecture takes philosophical approach to inductive inference

A free public lecture by philosophy student Matthew Pezzaniti today offers a look at how a few influential philosophers attempted to justify and evaluate inductive inference.

“I look at the differences and problems, and then attempt to construct a new position that combines the best parts of each of their methods,” Pezzaniti says.

He is student fellow of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation, and Rhetoric, which is presenting this event, entitled “Justifying and Evaluating Inferences,” at 4 p.m. in room 209, Essex Hall.
