II 303
Uniformity/Hume: we assume a uniformity of past and future.
Physics/Theory/Explanation/Genz: but we assume more than mere uniformity when we explain why.
Physics also hopes for a certain outcome of experiments that have never been conducted before. Merely uniformity is not enough.
Expectation/Genz: is justified by an understanding of the past. Better than through regularities. Therefore, there is no "induction problem".
