For n = 1, the identity just says 2 1=1 which is trivial. Now assume that the identity holds for an arbitrary number n.) That is, assume that 2 1 + 3 + 5 +.. + (2n - 1) = n/5(40). 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. I argue that even the scientific method depends on plausible reasoning, and that Author: David Hodgson.

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: 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, Professor Polya shows how even that most rigorous deductive discipline is heavily dependent on techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by analogy/5(37).

He explains how solutions to problems can be guessed at; good guessing is often more. Mathematics and plausible reasoning by George Pólya 13 Want to read Published by Princeton University Press in Princeton, New by: You can write a book review and share your experiences.

Everything I've read from this book so far is beautifully written. Polya displays his love for mathematics, and the the thought processes involved towards mathematical discovery. The level is about that of Courant& Robbins (What is Mathematics).

The result of the mathematician's creative work is demonstrative reasoning, a proof; but the proof is discovered by plausible reasoning, by guessing. If the learning of mathematics reflects to any degree the invention of mathematics, it must have a place for guessing, for plausible inference.

The syllogistic style of argumentation is illustrated by the oft-quoted argument "All men are mortal, Socrates is a man, and therefore, Socrates is mortal.".
