(Mill's Methods of Induction)
In this section, Mackie provides an outline of Mill's methods on induction. He sets out a formal account of Mill's methods, employing a variation of Aristotelian logic. The methods are those of agreement and disagreement (both in their simple and complex variants), the method of residues, and the method of concomitant variation. Some criticisms concerning the possibility of the employment of these methods are raised and responded to.
