The Material Theory of Induction
Thursday | 17.12.20 | 17:00
Prof. John D. Norton
Within the framework of the Bar-Hillel Colloquium for the History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Science
According to the material theory of induction, inductive inferences are not justified by universal formal rules. They are justified by background facts that only have local scope. Prof. Norton will defend the theory and then will argue that the probability calculus fails to provide a calculus of inductive inference universally applicable to all problems.
