While preparing for my exams , I came across an interesting topic where Hume challenged Science by criticizing Induction ( A form of Logic ) .

According to him , " Are we justified in reasoning from repeated instances of which we have experience to other instances ( Conclusions ) of which we have no experience . "

Through this he criticized Methods adopted by various Sciences , Sociology and other fields . Though he failed to explain this phenomena i.e leap from observable to un-observable or unobserved but he labelled this practice of ours as Mental Habit or Animal instinct .

What do you think ?
Experience can vouch for the conclusion but not always .

Take this issue for both Science and Religion .
