Re: Is logic "purely" formal?

Hi Smith, thanks.

I haven't read Stove's'The Rationality of Induction', so I do not know what he advocates in it. I ought to read it, but I have a pile of books I still want to read waiting for me.

If you're interested in Induction, I strongly recommend my book 'Hume's Problems with Induction', which should inoculate anyone against fallacious claims regarding this subject.

You can read it online here: Or you can buy it at or at in softcover or e-book form.

If you leave your e-mail address at, I will add you on to my mailing list for future announcements.

Something about you (optional) logician-philosopher
