I will discuss the problem of choosing the correct inductive method from Carnap"s (1952) continuum. My proposal is to use a correction rule to adjust the method according to obtained evidence. I will discuss a minimum requirement such a rule has to satisfy, especially from a consturctive point of view. The question of refuting inductive scepticism by means of a correction rule is assessed.
