  • Пессимистическая индукция или мета-индукция (англ. pessimistic induction, pessimistic meta-induction) — аргумент в философии науки, критикующий положения научного реализма. Согласно мета-индукции, истинность современных научных теорий ставится под сомнение из-за самой истории науки. В прошлом существовали эмпирически успешные теории, которые, спустя некоторое время, оказывались ложными. Поэтому мы не можем делать вывод об истинности наших современных теорий, так как они с большой вероятностью являются ложными. Впервые аргумент был выдвинут Лари Лауданом в 1981 году в его работе «A confutation of convergent realism». (ru)
