This idea has taken various forms and dominated the discussion about lawlikeness in the last decades. Hence, ranking theory with its resources of formalizing defeasible reasoning or inductive schemes seems ideally suited to explicate the idea in a formal way. This is what the paper attempts to do. Thus it will turn out that a law is simply the deterministic analogue of a sequence of independent, identically distributed random variables. This entails that de Finetti's representation theorems can be directly transformed into an account of confirmation of laws thus conceived.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Laws Are Persistent Inductives Schemes</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Spohn, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
