Does anybody know of any philosophers, appart from Wittgenstein, who gave accounts of induction by analysing our language?

I am attempting to write an essay on the problem of induction that doesn't focus so much on 'theories' as it does on conceptual ratification and would appriciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks.

A J Ayer, amongst other logical positivists. they stem from the Vienna circle like most philosophers that analyse language (more Europe than Vienna specifically). they believe to analyse language is to essentially analyse freedom.

hume did the problem of induction though, also known as causality.

probably a bit late, but i just got my account like yesterday
