AVERAGES.—Calculable proportions in view of all the variety of conditions concerned in occurrences. This is described in Logic as the doctrine of Probabilities (Quetelet, On Probabilities, transl. Downes; De Morgan, Cambridge Phil. Transactions).

"Chance may be described as the amount of belief with which we expect one or other out of two or more uncertain events " (Thomson's Laws of Thought, 3rd ed., p. 331).


As applicable to the occurrence of crime, as of accident, Lotze says:—"As soon as we know that the general economy of the universe apparently requires yearly a certain average of crime just as much as a certain average of temperature, we can hardly help seeing even in intellectual life the unbroken sequence of a blind mechanism"  (Microcosmus, translation, I. 25).
