CanIndifferenceVindicateInduction Fool Me Once: Can Indifference Vindicate Induction? Roger White (2015) sketches an ingenious new solution to the problem of induction. It argues on a priori grounds that the world is more likely to be inductionfriendly than inductionunfriendly. The argument relies primarily on the principle of indifference, and, somewhat surprisingly, assumes little else. If inductive methods could be vindicated in anything like this way, it would be quite a groundbreaking result. But there are grounds for pessimism about the envisaged approach. This paper shows that in the crucial test cases White concentrates on, the principle of indifference actually renders induction no more accurate than random guessing. It then diagnoses why the indifferencebased argument seems so intuitively compelling, despite being ultimately unsound. 1 An IndifferenceBased Strategy White begins by imagining that we are “apprentice demons” tasked with devising an inductionunfriendly world – a world where inductive methods tend to be unreliable. To simplify, we imagine that there is a single binary variable that we control (such as whether the sun rises over a series of consecutive days). So, in essence, the task is to construct a binary sequence such that – if the sequence were revealed one bit at a time – an inductive reasoner would fare poorly at predicting its future bits. This task, it turns out, is surprisingly difficult. To see this, it will be instructive to consider several possible strategies for constructing a sequence that would frustrate an ideal inductive predictor. Immediately, it is clear that we should avoid uniformly patterned sequences, such as: 00000000000000000000000000000000 or 01010101010101010101010101010101. 1 Sequences like these are quite kind to induction. Our inductive reasoner would quickly latch onto the obvious patterns these sequences exhibit. A more promising approach, it might seem, is to build an apparently patternless sequence: 00101010011111000011100010010100

Pedro Luiz Anacleto dos Santos Junior Tel. +30 6988 975 751 Email : firstname.lastname@example.org To: His Eminence Metropolitan (G.O.C.) Kyr kyr Kirykos. Your Eminence, It is to my great sorrow to note that until now You have not answered my letter from 28 Feb. (O.C.)/ 13 Mar. (N.C.), which shows Your Eminence’s indifference and contempt towards my humbleness. For which reasons You display such indifference, the Lord knows. Since, however, the themes and problems, which I set forth in my above‐ mentioned letter to You, arise in Your letter to my humbleness and touch upon issues concerning the Faith of the Orthodox Church handed down and sealed by the Holy Fathers and because Your teachings, positions, views and actions deviate from this, for this reason, I am obligated to not silence myself, but to mention and clarify the below: 1.
