This is a guide to the practical art of plausible reasoning, particularly in mathematics but also in every field of human activity. Using mathematics as the example par excellence, Professor Polya shows how even that most rigorous deductive discipline is heavily dependent on techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by analogy.5/5(1).

Preface: INDUCTION AND ANALOGY IN MATHEMATICS. This book has various aims, closely connected with each other. In the first place, this book intends to serve students and teachers of mathematics in an important but usually neglected way. Yet in a sense the book is also a philosophical essay. It is also a continuation and requires a continuation. Buy Mathematics and Plausible Reasoning, Volume 1: Induction and Analogy in Mathematics by G Polya online at Alibris.
