Induction is the logical process we use to arrive at general claims, scientific laws, definitions, and predictions. This book offers state-of-the-art essays by experts who argue against the prevailing Humean view of inductive reasoning as an unreliable, enumerative argument. They present alternative accounts in line with an on-going tradition that includes authors such as Socrates, Aristotle, the Scholastics, Goethe, Lonergan, and Rescher.
