In a career spanning over 5 decades, William W. Rozeboom, emeritus Professor in the University of Alberta’s Psychology Department and Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Psychology, produced a remarkable body of research in psychology, philosophy, and psychometrics in which he developed a radically new conception of scientific inference. This is what he termed Explanatory Induction (EI), a gift of natural selection, as he saw it, and the mainstay of human inference in everyday life and in the physical and biological sciences—yet often resisted in favor of statistical induction and hypothesis testing in the human sciences. Some of Rozeboom’s most important papers are edited here with an introduction by Eoghan Mac Aogáin.
