John Stuart Mill on Humanities - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 9
Humanities/"Geisteswissenschaften"/Mill/Gadamer: The word " Geisteswissenschaften" has become established primarily through the translator of John Stuart Mill's logic(1). In his work, Mill seeks to sketch out the possibilities of applying induction logic to the moral sciences.
Gadamer: It is already clear from the context of Mills' logic that it is not at all a matter of acknowledging a logic of its own in the humanities, but on the contrary of showing that it is the inductive method underlying all experiential science that is also valid in this field alone. Mill thus stands in an English tradition whose
most effective formulation Hume gave in his introduction to the "Treatise"(2). Also in moral science it is important to recognize uniformities, regularities, regularities that make the individual phenomena and processes predictable.
