'With Toby Handfield's wonderfully lucid and scrupulously fair guide to chance, philosophers at all levels now have an invaluable aid in coming to grips with this fundamental and beautiful area of philosophy. With a minimum of fussy technicality, and a maximum of clarity, readers are gently introduced to many topics in the physics and metaphysics of chance, even topics at the cutting edge of current research. Handfield's own sophisticated variety of anti-realism about chance will be of interest to even the most seasoned observers of this debate, and prompt much fruitful discussion.' Antony Eagle, University of Oxford
'This book is remarkably clear and unfailingly accessible, and will undoubtedly have its place on undergraduate reading lists.' J. T. M. Miller, The Philosophical Quarterly
A highly accessible introduction to the philosophy of chance, primarily for students and researchers in philosophy, but also for readers interested in the conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics and thermodynamics. Develops a sceptical view which challenges realist accounts of chance.See all Product Description
