First published in 1990, this is a reissue of Professor Hilary Putnam'¬"s dissertation thesis, written in 1951, which concerns itself with The Meaning of the Concept of Probability in Application to Finite Sequencesand the problems of the deductive justification for induction. Written under the direction of Putnam'¬"s mentor, Hans Reichenbach, the book considers Reichenbach'¬"s idealization of very long finite sequences as infinite sequences and the bearing this has upon Reichenbach'¬"s pragmatic vindication of induction.
