In this book, Michael Strevens presents a set of rules for defeasibly inferring physical probabilities from casual structure. He makes three main claims about these rules: (i) the rules are innate to all human beings, though perhaps not open to introspection, (ii) they have played important roles in scientific discoveries, and (iii) they are reliable in practice.
