**A Philosophical Essay on Probabilities**

by Pierre Simon Laplace

**Publisher**: Chapman & Hall 1902**Number of pages**: 234

**Description**:

This classic introduces the concepts and uses of probability theory. It demonstrates, without the use of higher mathematics, the application of probability to games of chance, physics, reliability of witnesses, astronomy, insurance, democratic government, and many other areas. It also shows how scientists can express complex ideas in simple terms.
