I was thinking about my senior research paper and figured some people here might enjoy a read about inductive principles, much of which is necessary for vetting (deductive based tests), stacking evidence (inductive based analysis), and understanding the law of nature (abductive acceptance).

Oh, you had a philosophy/logic course in college? I read parts of this book and enjoyed it.

Or, do you mean that you read scientific method articles in 2007?

I do enjoy some of the philosophical tools that John Stuart Mill has produced.

Second one man, I was lurking in a latin forum called noticierodigital (which is now mostly a political comunism-bashing party) and the thread of "alpha males" came out and it got me interested because I was searching for some methods of bettering myslef so I began to read, and one venezuelan guy in that forums said it was a womanizer bodybuilder (by being himself, he claimed) and also had a degree in education/sociology or some shit like that, and brought this subject in the thread, so I got interested and read a bunch things and recomendations from them, which I forgot because it was a long time ago heh. But all of this lead me to search on 'how we learn' and I got more deep which lead me to B.F. Skinner behaviorism and his famous pigeons tests, because I have a uncle that is a school educator and have some old books which I got from him, I mention this because is a recurrent topic in this niche.

Cheers.

This is an introductory textbook I had for a course on philosophy of science. It's a little waffy for the first couple chapters but gives a good overview of the discussion as it stands today.
