I wish to present a new way of responding to skepticism and consider its application to inductive skepticism. The chapter is structured as follows. I present Hume's argument in support of inductive skepticism (Section 2) and draw some distinctions between types of responses to skepticism (Section 3). Having explained what I mean by a "functional" response, I illustrate its application to Hume's inductive skepticism (Sections 4-5).
