Meta-, Anti-, Induction


We briefly discuss the classical problem of induction and the new riddle of anti-induction. Afterwards, we outline the main argument of Gaerdenfors (1990) for resolving the new riddle, discuss the meta-inductive approach to the classical problem of induction, and strengthen Gärdenfors' argument against anti-induction by help of expanding optimality considerations of the theory of meta-induction.
