There's the book by Morris de Groot, and one by Bernard Lindgren. Both have bland titles that I don't remember. I think the former might be "Probability and Statistics" and the latter "Statistical Inference" or something like that. Instead I will focus on the logic of the two most common procedures in statistical inference: the confidence interval and the hypothesis test.

Once you understand the logic behind these procedures, it turns out that all of the various “tests” are just iterations on the same basic theme.

This book builds theoretical statistics from the first principles of probability theory. Starting from the basics of probability, the authors develop the theory of statistical inference using techniques, definitions, and concepts that are statistical and are natural extensions and consequences of previous concepts.

Statistical inference is the process of using data analysis to deduce properties of an underlying distribution of probability.

Inferential statistical analysis infers properties of a population, for example by testing hypotheses and deriving is assumed that the observed data set is sampled from a larger population.

Inferential statistics can be contrasted with descriptive statistics. The text book Statistics in Action (Watkins et al., ) does a nice job of introducing the idea of inference at the beginning of the course, asking the funda- mental question - ‘is a result due to chance or due to design’, and using simulation.

The Logic of Statistical Inference scientists and engineers suggests that such ambiguous cases form the majority of those which arise in practice. Such systematic ambiguity-to use Russell's phrase, though semi-systematic ambiguity would here be better-is, of course, characteristic of mathematics.
