Hume's Problem: Induction and the Justification of Belief

Synopsis

Colin Howson offers a solution to one of the central, unsolved problems of Western philosophy, the problem of induction.

Howson claims that Hume's argument is correct, and examines what follows about the relation between science and its empirical base.
