Foundations of Measurement offers the most coherently organized treatment of the topics and issues central to measurement. Much of the research involved has been scattered over several decades and a multitude of journals--available in many instances only to specialties. With the publication of Volumes two and three of this important work, Foundations of Measurement is the most comprehensive presentation in the area of measurement.


Professional psychologists, sociologists, and economists interested in measurement questions. Philosophers of science interested in foundations of measurement.

About the Author

Patrick Suppes


@qu:This serious volume lends a timely legitimacy and maturity to the enriched classes of models that are being developed by the methodologists, but which will be increasingly employed by members of the broader psychological measurement community. @source:--APPLIED PSYCHOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT @note:[The following quote should be used only when advertising both volumes II and III together] @qu:The monumental finished work of more than 1,400 pages (volumes I, II, and III) is a tribute to its authors' perserverance as well as being a cornucopia of measurement theory. @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN STATISTICAL ASSOCIATION
