Universals and Induction

David Kelley

Presented at: PI Toronto 1988

Date: Mar 12, 1988

The fundamental processes by which we integrate the material provided by our senses are concept-formation and inductive generalization. The first lecture will discuss Ayn Rand's theory of concepts, contrasting it with the major historical alternatives, realism and nominalism. The second lecture will discuss the validation of induction, showing why a full validation requires a proper theory of concepts.
