Title: Kant's response to the problem of induction
Author: Sharp, Curtis Thorburn
Abstract: In this paper , I examine Immanuel Kant’s response to David Hume’s problem of induction . I pay particular attention to Kant’s main writings on causation : the Second Analogy in The Critique of Pure Reason and the Introduction to The Critique of Judgment . I agree with Paul Guyer that Kant does not provide a solution to the problem in the Critique of Reason . I disagree with Guyer , however , that Kant also does not provide a solution in the Critique of Judgment : whereas Guyer concludes that Kant tells us that we merely assume – and cannot prove - that induction is justified , I conclude that Kant argues for an externalist justification of induction .
