    A mathematical model of Churchmanian inquiring systems with special reference to Popper's measures for?The Severity of Tests?Ian I. Mitroff, Frederick Betz & Richard O. Mason - 1970 - Theory and Decision 1 (2):155-178.
    Through the use of Bayesian probability theory and Communication theory, a formal mathematical model of a Churchmanian Dialectical Inquirer is developed. The Dialectical Inquirer is based on Professor C. West Churchman's novel interpretation and application of Hegelian dialectics to decision theory. The result is not only the empirical application of dialectical inquiry but also its empirical (i.e., scientific) investigation. The Dialectical Inquirer is seen as especially suited to problems in strategic policy formation and in decision theory. Finally, specific application of (...)

    Solipsism: An essay in psychological philosophy.Ian I. Mitroff - 1971 - Philosophy of Science 38 (3):376-394.
    The thesis of this paper is that in dealing with problems of "mind," the philosopher of mind needs to be as well grounded in his relevant sciences (e.g. psychology, anthropology) as the philosopher of the physical sciences needs to be grounded in his relevant sciences (e.g. physics). The thesis of this paper is also that the psychological analysis of solipsism and the philosophical analysis are not independent (or at least not independent in all of their aspects), and that therefore the (...)

    Systems, inquiry, and the meanings of falsification.Ian I. Mitroff - 1973 - Philosophy of Science 40 (2):255-276.
    The purpose of this paper is to show that there are as many formulations of the process of falsification as there are archetypal, philosophical systems of inquiry. This paper explores several systems of inquiry which are based on Churchman's reading of the history of Western epistemology. It is argued that (1) the falsification of scientific theories can never be a purely formal process although it is perpetually open to formal exploration; (2) that contrary to current belief, falsification can never be (...)

    Towards a behavioral theory of systemic hypothesis-testing and the error of the third kind.Ian I. Mitroff & Tom R. Featheringham - 1976 - Theory and Decision 7 (3):205-220.
    Scientific ideas neither arise nor develop in a vacuum. They are always nutured against a background of prior, partially conflicting ideas. Systemic hypothesistesting is the problem of testing scientific hypotheses relative to various systems of background knowledge. This paper shows how the problem of systemic hypothesis-testing (Sys HT) can be systematically expressed as a constrained maximimization problem. It is also shown how the error of the third kind (E III) is fundamental to the theory of Sys HT.The error of the (...)

    Technology Run Amok: Crisis Management in the Digital Age.Ian I. Mitroff - 2018 - Cham: Imprint: Palgrave Macmillan.
    The recent data controversy with Facebook highlights the tech industry as a whole was utterly unprepared for the backlash it faced as a result of its business model of selling user data to third parties. Despite the predominant role that technology plays in all of our lives, the controversy also revealed that many tech companies are reactive, rather than proactive, in addressing crises. This book examines society's failure to manage technology and its resulting negative consequences. Mitroff argues that the "technological (...)
