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. It is better than regularity. Therefore, there is no "problem of induction".
Induction/GenzVsPopper: there is no "problem of induction". Understanding is the solution rather than the acceptance of regularities.
Principle/Genz: the disguised reality of the laws of nature is such that we can understand it by principles._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
