Hi Avi, thanks. I had a feeling there was something fishy about it, but couldn't put my finger on where the error was.
Hi Smith, thanks.
I haven't read Stove's'The Rationality of Induction', so I do not know what he advocates in it. I ought to read it, but I have a pile of books I still want to read waiting for me.
If you're interested in Induction, I strongly recommend my book 'Hume's Problems with Induction', which should inoculate anyone against fallacious claims regarding this subject.
You can read it online here: http://www.thelogician.net/LOGICAL-and-SPIRITUAL-REFLECTIONS/Hume/Hume-Problems-with-Induction-A.htm. Or you can buy it at amazon.com or at lulu.com in softcover or e-book form.
If you leave your e-mail address at www.thelogician.net, I will add you on to my mailing list for future announcements.
Something about you (optional) logician-philosopher
