The paradox of confirmation

And if you want to know more on the paradox of confirmation, science, and inference, the one book you should read is Peter Lipton‘s Inference to the Best Explanation (2nd ed, Routledge, 2004). A truly great book that has influenced my own scientific thinking tremendously.

If you’re looking for a more comprehensive bibliography on Inference to the Best Explanation, here’s a good one. And for those of you who read Swedish, I self-indulgently recommend this.
