According to David Hume, the concept of causation and probability are to be understood in terms of the concepts of similarity and repetition. In this book, it is shown that they are to be understood in terms of the concept of continuity. One corollary is that there is no legitimate basis for skepticism concerning the legitimacy of inductive inference. Another is that anti-realism about theoretical entities is misconceived.

If you could sum up Theoretical Knowledge and Inductive Inference in three words, what would they be?

fast, accurate, true

What other book might you compare Theoretical Knowledge and Inductive Inference to and why?

maybe some book by j.s. mill, one of those great treatise writers of yesterday. the author is a 'theory builder'--a big idea man, like darwin, freud, one of those people.

What about John-Michael Kuczynski’s performance did you like?

It was direct. No varnish. But subtly modulated, beneath a hard hitting exterior.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too much info for that.

Any additional comments?

A brilliant book. I don't know why I hadn't heard of this guy before.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It was so clear, concise, yet comprehensive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Only one character, the author, but I love him, his controlled passion, and I love this author's 'library' of audio logic books.

What about J.-M. Kuczynski’s performance did you like?

The directness, the starkness.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The set-theoretic interpretations of arithmetic truths.

Any additional comments?

A perfect intro for students of logic, set theory. The author clearly states exactly what is important, no fluff, no frills. Just pure content.

Dean Corll was an electrician for Houston Power and Light, but most of Henley's friends knew him as the Candy Man, so named because he had labored for years in the candy manufacturing plant that he and his mother had once owned. Corll was famous for giving away candy to the kids. Little did they know that "the Candy Man of Houston" was in fact a sadistic, cruel, remorseless rapist and murderer. Between September 25, 1970 and August 3, 1973, Corll killed at least 28 young men and boys, and the actual number of victims may have been more than 30.
