Approaches to natural language. Proceedings of the 1970 Stanford workshop on grammar and semantics by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and Dutch and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers and comments published in the present volume represent the proceedings of a research workshop on the grammar and semantics of natural languages held at Stanford University in the fall of 1970. The workshop met first for three days in September and then for a period of two days in November for extended discussion and analysis. The workshop was sponsored by the Committee on Basic Research in Education, which has been funded by the United States Office of Education through a grant to the National Academy of Education and the National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council. We acknowledge with pleasure the sponsorship which made possible a series oflively and stimulating meetings that were both enjoyable and instructive for the three of us, and, we hope, for most of the participants, including a number of local linguists and philosophers who did not contribute papers but actively joined in the discussion. One of the central participants in the workshop was Richard Montague. We record our sense of loss at his tragic death early in 1971, and we dedicate this volume to his memory. None of the papers in the present volume discusses explicitly problems of education. In our view such a discussion is neither necessary nor sufficient for a contribution to basic research in education. There are in fact good reasons why the kind of work reported in the present volume constitutes an important aspect of basic research in education
Studies in the methodology and foundations of science. Selected papers from 1951 to 1969 by Patrick Suppes( Book )

7 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty-three papers collected in tbis volume represent an important part of my published work up to the date of this volume. I have not arranged the paper chronologically, but under four main headings. Part I contains five papers on methodology concerned with models and measurement in the sciences. This part also contains the first paper I published, 'A Set of Independent Axioms for Extensive Quantities', in Portugaliae Mathematica in 1951. Part 11 also is concerned with methodology and ineludes six papers on probability and utility. It is not always easy to separate papers on probability and utility from papers on measurement, because of the elose connection between the two subjects, but Artieles 6 and 8, even though they have elose relations to measurement, seem more properly to belong in Part 11, because they are concerned with substantive questions about probability and utility. The last two parts are concerned with the foundations of physics and the foundations of psychology. I have used the term foundations rather than philosophy, because the papers are mainly concerned with specific axiomatic formulations for particular parts of physics or of psychology, and it seems to me that the termfoundations more appropriately describes such constructive axiomatic ventures. Part 111 contains four papers on the foundations of physics. The first paper deals with foundations of special relativity and the last three with the role ofprobability in quantum mechanics
Information and inference by Jaakko Hintikka( Book )

16 editions published in 1970 in English and Dutch and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last 25 years, the concept of information has played a crucial role in communication theory, so much so that the terms information theory and communication theory are sometimes used almost interchangeably. It seems to us, however, that the notion of information is also destined to render valuable services to the student of induction and probability, of learning and reinforcement, of semantic meaning and deductive inference, as~well as of scientific method in general. The present volume is an attempt to illustrate some of these uses of information concepts. In 'On Semantic Information' Hintikka summarizes some of his and his associates' recent work on information and induction, and comments briefly on its philosophical suggestions. Jamison surveys from the sub jectivistic point of view some recent results in 'Bayesian Information Usage'. Rosenkrantz analyzes the information obtained by experimen tation from the Bayesian and Neyman-Pearson standpoints, and also from the standpoint of entropy and related concepts. The much-debated principle of total evidence prompts Hilpinen to examine the problem of measuring the information yield of observations in his paper 'On the Information Provided by Observations'. Pietarinen addresses himself to the more general task of evaluating the systematizing ('explanatory') power of hypotheses and theories, a task which quickly leads him to information concepts. Domotor develops a qualitative theory of information and entropy. His paper gives what is probably the first axiomatization of a general qualitative theory of information adequate to guarantee a numerical representation of the standard sort
Space, time and geometry by Patrick Suppes( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and Dutch and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles in this volume have been stimulated in two different ways. More than two years ago the editor of Synthese, laakko Hintikka, an nounced a special issue devoted to space and time, and articles were solicited. Part of the reason for that announcement was also the second source of papers. Several years ago I gave a seminar on special relativity at Stanford, and the papers by Domotor, Harrison, Hudgin, Latzer and myself partially arose out of discussion in that seminar. All of the papers except those of Griinbaum, Fine, the second paper of Friedman, and the paper of Adams appeared in a special double issue of Synthese (24 (1972), Nos. 1-2). I am pleased to have been able to add the four additional papers mentioned in making the special issue a volume in the Synthese Library. Of these four additional articles, only the one by Fine has pre viously appeared in print (Synthese 22 (1971),448--481); its relevance to the present volume is apparent. In preparing the papers for publication and in carrying out the various editorIal chores of such a task, I am very much indebted to Mrs. Lillian O'Toole for her extensive assistance. INTRODUCTION The philosophy of space and time has been of permanent importance in philosophy, and most of the major historical figures in philosophy, such as Aristotle, Descartes and Kant, have had a good deal to say about the nature of space and time

Computer-assisted instruction: Stanford's 1965-66 arithmetic program by Patrick Suppes( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of the possibilities and challenges of computer-assisted instruction (cai), and a brief history of cai projects at Stanford serve to give the reader the context of the particular program described and analyzed in this book. The 1965-66 arithmetic drill-and-practice program is described, summarizing the curriculum and project operation. An edited version of the daily log of the project operation documents the types of problems encountered in the first application of a new technology in an operational setting. The results of surveys of students, parents, and teachers at the school made after the drill program had been in operation several months are presented and discussed. Previous research on methods of arithmetic teaching is reviewed; the implications of this research for the design and content of the drill program are described. The report presents some models for student performance in considerable detail. A controlled experiment conducted within the drill program is reported. The hardware, programing logic, and programing language developed to handle the program are described and analyzed. Appendixes provide a report on the previous year's program in cai mathematics and several examples of the set of drills used by students at various grade levels. (Jy)

Logic and probability in quantum mechanics by Patrick Suppes( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and Dutch and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the academic years 1972-1973 and 1973-1974, an intensive sem inar on the foundations of quantum mechanics met at Stanford on a regular basis. The extensive exploration of ideas in the seminar led to the org~ization of a double issue of Synthese concerned with the foundations of quantum mechanics, especially with the role of logic and probability in quantum meChanics. About half of the articles in the volume grew out of this seminar. The remaining articles have been so licited explicitly from individuals who are actively working in the foun dations of quantum mechanics. Seventeen of the twenty-one articles appeared in Volume 29 of Syn these. Four additional articles and a bibliography on -the history and philosophy of quantum mechanics have been added to the present volume. In particular, the articles by Bub, Demopoulos, and Lande, as well as the second article by Zanotti and myself, appear for the first time in the present volume. In preparing the articles for publication I am much indebted to Mrs. Lillian O'Toole, Mrs. Dianne Kanerva, and Mrs. Marguerite Shaw, for their extensive assistance
Computer-assisted instruction at Stanford, 1966-68: data, models, and evaluation of the arithmetic programs by Patrick Suppes( Book )

14 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1966-68 Stanford mathematics programs in computer-assisted instruction (cai) is reported in this book. The first part describes in detail the 1966-68 arithmetic drill and practice program which followed the similar program run in 1965-66. Part ii describes the tutorial program in first and second grade mathematics at Brentwood School in East Palo Alto. Each of the two parts emphasizes three main aspects of the program: the curriculum, the operation of terminals in schools, and the behavioral analysis of student response data. An introductory chapter considers some of the issues raised by cai and overviews the operation during 1966-68. Sections in the first part describe the curriculum and students, regression models and response data, automation models of student performance, and data on learning and evaluation. Sections in the second part cover the Stanford-Brentwood laboratory and program, the curriculum and operation of the laboratory, analysis of response data, and analysis of individual student data. Appended are more detailed supplementary materials. (Sh)
