Leonard Peikoff makes the case that philosophy is an inductive subject and that therefore the only way to reach valid philosophical principles is by observing facts and then generalizing. As a demonstration of the inductive method, Peikoff identifies the basic steps by which one can arrive at the principle of causality. The lesson also discusses the relation between induction and deduction, and the importance of both reduction and integration.
