About the Author

Ben Novak is an independent scholar with an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in history, philosophy, and political science from Pennsylvania State University.


Hitler and Abductive Logic: The Strategy of a Tyrant is thought-provoking and extremely creative, exploring aspects and influences of Hitler's formative years that other biographers and historians have not examined to the same degree of detail. The application of the logic of abduction to Hitler's mental development is fascinating, and clearly no other author has tried to apply Peirce's description to Hitler in such a way. -- Beth A. Griech-Polelle, Pacific Lutheran University
The amount of literature on Adolf Hitler is astounding. And yet, as Ben Novak demonstrates, historians still have not fully explained how this ill-educated and irrational provincial Austrian actually rose to power in Germany. This work uses the concept of abductive logic both as a means of investigating the mystery of Hitler's rise to power and as a way to understand the mind and character of Hitler. Novak's book, written in an engaging narrative style, offers a compelling argument for a new approach to the mystery of Hitler's rise to power. -- Jackson Spielvogel, Pennsylvania State University
