Infer THIS!


A fair amount to chew on in this entry from Michael Harris, focusing on the quirky (Harris says, "eclectic") online journal Inference (current issue includes an interesting Gregory Chaitin piece, as well as the set/category theoretical piece Harris concentrates on):

 ...though, if you're philosophy-phobic, perhaps best to avoid :-[
(Harris also mentions the loose theory some have that controversial writer David Berlinski is behind, or at least associated with, the journal, whose editors/progenitors go unnamed.)
