p.34, Chapter 2. Humean analyses   3. A puzzle. Consider the generalization, discussed briefly in Chapter 1, that all gold spheres are less than ten meters in diameter. It is true, contingent and unrestricted. So, according to our naive regularity analysis, it is a law that all gold spheres are less that ten meters in diameter. Nevertheless, this generalization is not a law. All that prevents a gold sphere that big is the fact that no one has been curious enough and wealthy enough to have such a sphere produced.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs

Comments:
Il fait remarquer ensuite que, bien qu’une sphère d’un mile de diamètre soit beaucoup plus radicalement impossible (il pourrait ne pas y avoir assez d’or dans l'univers), la proposition que toute sphère d’or a moins d’un mile de diamètre ne fait pas non plus un candidat satisfaisant à être une loi de la nature.   Added by: Dominique Meeùs  (2009-05-30 15:49:28)
