In Algebra of Probable Inference Richard T Cox develops and demonstrates that probability theory is the only theory of inductive inference that abides by logical consistency Cox does so through a functional derivation of probability theory as the uniue extension of Boolean Algebra thereby establishing for the first time the legitimacy of probability theory as formalized by Laplace in the 18th centuryPerhaps.

His consideration of systems of assertions a theory that he fully developed some years later Although Cox's contributions to probability are acknowledged and have recently gained worldwide recognition the significance of his work regarding logical uestions is virtually unknown The contributions of Richard Cox to logic and inductive reasoning may eventually be seen to be the most significant since Aristotle.

The most significant conseuence of Cox's work is that probability represents a subjective degree of plausible belief relative to a particular system but is a theory that applies universally and objectively across any system making inferences based on an incomplete state of knowledge Cox goes well beyond this amazing conceptual advancement however and begins to formulate a theory of logical uestions through.

This is one of the crowning achievements of the human race and is virtually unknown No I'm not exaggeratingRichard Cox introduces three axioms that are little than distilled common sense to establish an ordinal algebra of belief In this algebra one only seeks to assign a proposition a higher or lower degree of belief that it might be true He then deduces the way that our many beliefs influence one another still in an
