|Abstract||The inductive logic developed in the second and third essays is limited in important ways. For example: (a) the logic makes no provision for missing or misleading data; (b) it gives the scientist no control over the evidence reaching him; (c) revision-based scientist must work with theories written in the cramped idiom of ﬁrstorder logic; (d) the idea of eﬃcient induction is only weakly expressed (in terms of “dominance”).|
