Regularities Chisholm II M.David/L. Stubenberg (Hg) Philosophische Aufsätze zu Ehren von R.M. Chisholm Graz 1986

II 42/43
Regularity of the world/Hume: both the belief in a uniform and in a non-uniform world (in which the predictions fail) refer to a contingent state of affairs of reality - hence no logical proof - empiricism, in turn, requires regularity - for the regularity thesis itself it can never be ascertained whether it leads to success or failure - Rutte: one who believes in universal regularity must proceed through guessing who guesses does not believe in regularities but in a method for success! Contradiction.
II 45
Regularity of the world/Rutte: a belief in it should be maintained - but a transition to it is not methodologically justifiable.
