Author’s Abstract

  1. In the following remarks, it will be attempted to analyse the logical form of the concept of probability and of the statements in which it occurs, and to apply the result of this analysis to some problems concerning the language of empirical science.
  2. Our considerations will be based on the modern statistical theory of probability which is, at present, certainly by far the most satisfactory and consistent basis for a theoretical account of the concept of probability as it is actually used in empirical science as well as in everyday language.
