Abstract: A class of subsets of a bounded metric space is said to be normal if each member of contains a nondiametral point. An induction proof is given for the following. Suppose is a nonempty bounded metric space which contains a class of subsets which is countably compact, normal, stable under arbitrary intersections, and which contains the closed balls in . Then every nonexpansive self-mapping of has a fixed point.
