Cleansing the Doors of Perception: Aristotle on Induction

In Konstantine Boudouris (ed.), Greek Philosophy and Epistemology. International Association for Greek Philosophy (2001)
This chapter has two objectives. The first is to clarify Aristotle’s view of the first principles of the sciences. The second is to stake out a critical position with respect to this view. The paper sketches an alternative to Aristotle’s intuitionism based in part on the use of quantitative inductive logics.
