"Sober's treatment of the role of Ockham's razor in scientific methodology is, quite simply, the best that one can find in the philosophical literature today. With excursions into such diverse topics as model construction, Bayesian statistics, phylogenetic inference, philosophy of mind, and general philosophical methodology, readers of all stripes will find this book rewarding."
James M. Joyce, Cooper Harold Langford Collegiate Professor of Philosophy, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
"Ockham's Razors is a great book that philosophers, scientists, and anyone else interested in reasoning about the empirical world would do well to read carefully."
Daniel Steel, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"A flawless crash course in probability theory is expertly delivered at the outset, providing the casual reader with everything needed to grapple with the fairly technical discussions that follow."
Tom Graham, The Times Literary Supplement
"I view this monograph as an ideal introduction to Sober's philosophy. This is helped by [his] clear and entertaining style of writing: Ockham's Razors is a pleasure to read. As such, I recommend the book to any graduate student with interests in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of probability or the philosophy of biology. Furthermore, the book is suitable for a graduate seminar on Ockham's razor and individual chapters can be used for specialist graduate courses in the philosophy of probability, the philosophy of biology and the philosophy of mind."
Bengt Autzen, Philosophy of Science
The theory of Ockham's razor has a history dating back to Aristotle. In this book Elliott Sober presents a clear and multidimensional study of the various different incarnations of the theory including their history, the role which they play in several different sciences, and their importance to philosophical argumentation.

We have checked the eBook file submitted to Kindle and can confirm that the file is as it should be. Kindle eBooks do have page numbering but it aligns with the print page numbering and depending on font and screen size one page of the text may spread over several Kindle "pages" as the text adjusts to the size of the screen and font.
Kindle's "Popular Highlights" function may be what is causing the issue you have experienced with underlined text - it is a Kindle function which shares other user's underlines on your Kindle's screen. This can be switched off via your Kindle's settings. If you are still experiencing issues or cannot switch this function off, Kindle Customer Support will be able to help guide you through to a resolution.
