This is a guide to the practical art of plausible reasoning, particularly in mathematics, but also in every field of human activity. Using mathematics as the example par excellence, Polya shows how even the most rigorous deductive discipline is heavily dependent on techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by by: Mathematics and Plausible Reasoning, Volume 1: Induction and Analogy in Mathematics Reprint Edition by G.

Polya (Author)Cited by: Volumes I and II together make a coherent work on Mathematics and Plausible Reasoning. Volume I on Induction and Analogy stands by itself as an essential book for anyone interested in mathematical reasoning. Volume II on Patterns o Mathematics and plausible reasoning.

Plausible reasoning is hazardous, controversial, and provisional. Demonstrative reasoning penetrates the sciences just as far; as mathematics does, but it is in itself (as mathematics is.

If the learning of mathematics reflects to any degree the invention of mathematics, it must have a place for guessing, for plausible inference.

In Chapter 3, I consider one very important aspect of our rationality, namely our ability to engage in plausible reasoning; that is, reasoning in which the premises or data do not entail the conclusions by virtue of applicable rules, but rather support them as a matter of reasonable albeit fallible judgment.
