Thomas D. Giles, MD, 109 Holly Drive, Metairie, LA 70005


“The truly great advances in our understanding of nature originated in a way almost diametrically opposed to induction. The intuitive grasp of the essentials of a large complex of facts leads the scientist to the postulation of a hypothetical law or laws. From these laws, he derives his conclusion.”—Albert Einstein, “Induction and Deduction in Physics,” Berliner Tageblatt, December 25, 1919, CPAE 7:28.
