Blurb/Shorttext:
The work is an effort to appraise what may be called absolutism in science (the belief that a particular method is the sole method of science and should always hold sway even when there are other options) with Inductivism as our case study. This we will do by using John Stuart Mill’s Inductive scientific methodology as a case study of this absolutism. We will first disprove this claim by proving the undependability of induction as a sole scientific method; this will be done by first establishing the roles played by the human reason and a priori ideas in the scientific enterprise and consequently, we will conclude that science has more to do with pragmatism via relativism which can be certified by some landmark achievements in the history of science.
