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.
