The place of probability in science in honor of Ellery Eells (1953-2006) by Ellery Eells ( )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of philosophy, broadly conceived, can be described as that of attempting to resolve heretofore unsolved conceptual and theoretical problems, especially those that lie at the foundations of knowledge and values. Given the central role of science in acquiring reliable knowledge, the study of science has become of special importance within philosophy.

Probability and conditionals : belief revision and rational decision by Ellery Eells ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a state-of-the-art collection of essays on the relation between probabilities, especially conditional probabilities, and conditionals. It provides new negative results that sharply limit the ways conditionals can be related to conditional probabilities. There are also positive ideas and results that will open up new areas of research. The collection is intended to honor Ernest W. Adams, whose seminal work is largely responsible for creating this area of inquiry. In addition to describing, evaluating, and applying Adams's work, these contributions extend his ideas in directions he may or may not have anticipated, but that he certainly inspired. This volume should be of interest to a wide range of philosophers of science, as well as to computer scientists and linguists
