A hit and run thought: induction

The ‘problem’ of induction is problematic for those who emphasise the primacy of experience to try and account for the formal, non-experientially significant aspect of reality.

It is the empiricist trying to come to terms with that which the rationalist maintains, without conceding to the a priori.

If we assume the primacy of experience as a guide to truth; we may find this problematic.

All knowledge does come from experience, but the former does not arise from the latter.
