    generalization of the greenness of emeralds. To reason against the “grue theory”, we would need to assert that we have no experience of blue emeralds in the past. This leads us back to the problem of induction popularized by Hume, which concludes that the belief that the future will resemble the past exhibits circular logic. Until time t is reached, we have no basis for rejecting the grue theory posed by Goodman. To refute Hempel’s paradox, one would need to encounter a white raven (or any colored raven other than black.) The primary difference in Hempel 's papradox and Goodman 's grue example that I can determine is the time limitation. Grue represents a fixed point in time at which certainty becomes uncertain. If at time t everything we have previously examined may or may not change color, then it is possible that ravens as well as emeralds may turn blue. Goodman 's example introduces an uncertainty variable not contained in Hempel 's paradox. Q2 Piatelli-Palmarini describes “ease of representation” as a logical fallacy that occurs when a person believes something to be true based not on empirical evidence but rather on how often it is reported and how easy it is to imagine being true. That is, they are emotionally invested in the belief regardless of its veracity. Bertrand Russell referred to this as “popular induction”; the author also describes it as “emotional impressionability “ and “spontaneous generalization.” Another term for this fallacy could be…
