Change, Choice and Inference develops logical theories that are necessary both for the understanding of adaptable human reasoning and for the design of intelligent systems. The book shows that reasoning processes - the drawing on inferences and changing one's beliefs - can be viewed as belonging to the realm of practical reason by embedding logical theories into the broader context of the theory of rational choice. The book unifies lively and significant strands of research in logic, philosophy, economics and artificial intelligence. It elaborates on the relevant theories and provides a mathematically precise foundation for the thesis that large parts of theoretical reason can be subsumed under practical reason.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book contains impressive tables that specify exact correspondences between properties on different levels. Rott is a master of such results, and in the book he adds quite a few new ones to others that he has reported previously. * Studia Logica *
It remains to clarify the relation between the substantial criteria of choice in practical and theoretical reasoning. The structural similarities shown by Hans Rott in this book will significantly simplify investigations of these and other fundamental issues in logic and epistemology. * Studia Logica *
