Summary

Scientific Thinking is a practical guide to inductive reasoning--the sort of reasoning that is commonly used in scientific activity, whether such activity is performed by a scientist, a political pollster, or any one of us informally on a day-to-day basis. Martin's wide-ranging but concise introduction to this subject may be used either as the main text for courses in scientific reasoning (especially those for non-science majors) or as a supplementary text for courses in critical thinking, informal reasoning or the philosophy of the social sciences; it is designed to increase the methodological sophistication of a broad range of students at an introductory level.

The book is broken into three main sections: Induction, Proportions and Correlations; Explanations; Cause; and includes extensive exercise sections scattered throughout the book.
