How can we know the future on the basis of the past? We cannot, so it is alleged, unless we have some assurance that the laws of nature currently operative will continue to remain operative. But we can have no such assurance unless we know that the future will resemble the past. This short treatise breaks this vicious circle, showing why it is that our beliefs concerning the future are, at least in principle, capable of having a legitimate footing in our beliefs concerning the past.
