Book Wanted: Forensic Reasoning
- I'm an editor with a small academic publishing house. I am seeking an
independent-thinking practitioner that can author a book that would
distill the essence of "forensic thinking" across all forensic
Such a book would provide general definitions (e.g. "artifact,"
"exemplar," etc.) and would provide insight into the evidence-based
reasoning used by forensic practitioners (such as causality,
"reasoning to the best expanation," on so on). In short, what are the
common ideas and general models that all forensic practitioners
(regardless of stripe) use to reach conclusions as to EVENTS based on
FACTS. Such a book may even be provocative to the extent that it may
challenge the notion that forensic thinking must, by definition, be
tied to the law.
