About the Author

Darrell P. Rowbottom is Professor of Philosophy at Lingnan University, Hong Kong, and Associate Editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy


"This is a remarkable book in that, while using the absolute minimum of mathematics, it manages to explain all the main views in the philosophy of probability clearly and accurately. Indeed it covers some recent approaches on which active research is taking place at the moment." Donald Gillies, University College London "Easy and fun to read, this book is a thought-provoking introduction to a wide range of important theories and issues about the nature of probability." Timothy Williamson, University of Oxford
