Landes, Jürgen (2014): Tychomancy: Inferring Probability from Causal Structure. In: International Studies in the Philosophy of Science, Vol. 28, No. 4: pp. 446-448

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.
