As I try to show in the second constructive part, positive instantial relevance and the Reichenbach axiom may be regained for analogical inference. The note closes with some general skeptical remarks to the effect that by trying to accommodate analogy considerations inductive logic regresses to subjectivism.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
