- Summary
- Seeking references for criticisms of Jaynes's information theoretic approach to Statistical Mechanics.

In his well known paper “

**Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics**” Jaynes attempted to formulated statistical mechanics as "nothing more" than the inference theory of many body mechanical systems. I am looking for critiques of this approach. Also of use would be summaries or reviews of the "current state of debate".
