Abstract

In this paper, we present an explanatory objection to Norton’s material theory of induction, as applied to predictive inferences. According to the objection we present, there is an explanatory disconnect between our beliefs about the future and the future facts. We argue that if we recognize such a disconnect, we are no longer rationally entitled to our future beliefs.
