Counter-argument: Why Goodman’s ‘Grue’ Problem is unjustified

In this paper, I will argue that Goodman’s “all emeralds are grue” statement is unjustified, and “all emeralds are green” is a more justified statement from induction. First, I will explain the basic process and definition of using induction, and then succinctly illustrate what is the “grue” problem raised by Goodman.
