The Reasoner is a monthly digest highlighting exciting new research on reasoning, inference and method broadly construed. It is interdisciplinary, covering research in, e.g., philosophy, logic, AI, statistics, cognitive science, law, psychology, mathematics and the sciences. In this month’s issue you can find a report on the workshop held at the University of Kent last month on Evidence of mechanisms in evidence-based medicine.
