According to a widely accepted view the empirical sciences can be characterized by the fact that they use 'inductive methods', as they are ing to this view, the logic of scientific discovery would be identical with inductive logic, i.e.

with the logical. This book is an extended discussion of Hume's famous sceptical argument that we have no reason to believe that the future will resemble the past.

In the context of scientific methodology, this implies that however stringent the process of experimentation, the data supplied does not in itself support any one general hypothesis over another.

Hume's Problem: Induction and the Justification of Belief Colin Howson In the mid-eighteenth century David Hume argued that successful prediction tells us nothing about the truth of the predicting theory. The discussion about the justification of induction started in the late 19th century.
