Part of the Boston Studies in The Philosophy of Science book series (BSPS, volume 173)

Various theories of probability have been propounded in modern times. In the present chapter we shall consider the most important of them with regard to their applicability to modern science, and suggest a particular view – in which the nominal and real aspects of reality are distinguished – to be the superior alternative.We shall also consider the application of probabilistic and similar forms of thinking to questions regarding the respective acceptability of theories, laws and principles.
