The paradox of confirmation results from two principles: first, Nicod’s condition, second, equivalence condition. Thus solutions to the paradox are of two types: first, solutions based on the rejection of Nicod’s condition, and second, ones based on the rejection of equivalence condition. After illustrating the paradox of confirmation, i shall examin solutions based on the rejection of Nicod’s condition: (a) Hempel’s solution, (b) solution based on standard Bayesianism, (c) Good’s solution, (d) Quine’s solution.
