Commentary on Bayes’s Essay
In the preceding chapter several points, arising from Bayes’s Essay, were either glossed over or omitted altogether. It is now time to fill in these lacunae, though certain of the topics to be discussed here will in fact undergo further development later in this tractate (in particular, we shall not consider here any elaboration of the main results of the Essay, and the Supplement to the Essay will be dealt with in Chapter 5).
