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.
Overview. Geometrical Representations. Axiomatic Geometry and Applications. Proximity Measurement. Color and Force Measurement. Representations with Thresholds. Representations of Choice Probabilities. References. Author Index. Subject Index.
