By JUHANI PIETARINEN. Amsterdam, North-Holland Publishing Company, Pp. Hfl. This monograph discusses quantitative systems of inductive logic in which problems of Lawlikeness and analogy may be treated. The prob-lem of lawlikeness is taken to be the question how appropriate probability.

Reasoning by Analogy. many have echoed Hume’s claim that inductive inference presupposes some such principle. Musgrave (), for example, on behalf of. Deductive logic: Patrick Suppe's "Introduction to Logic", "Logic, language and meaning" by Gamut (a group of logicians) and Ted Sider's "Logic for Philosophy".

Instead of being valid or invalid, inductive arguments are either strong or weak, according to how probable it is that the conclusion is true.

We may call an inductive argument plausible, probable, reasonable. Abstract. Hintikka’s research program for inductive logic started where Carnap’s program had left off: laws of nature and their degrees of confirmation on finite amounts of evidence. Many of Carnap’s critics took the problem to be the zero probability of laws of nature analogy and inductive logic.

book infinite universes on finite amounts of evidence. So did Carnap by: 1. One example of analogical reasoning is as follows: since the world is similar to a clock in the respect that it has complexity and Lawlikeness clock has a maker, the world must also have a maker.

Arguments from analogy are inductive arguments. Arguments from analogy have the following form: (1) P has properties A, B, and C in common with Q, (2) P also.

These hesitations confer an inductive character onto the inference warranted by the fact of analogy. The fact of analogy must be able to power this inference. (shelved 1 time as deductive-reasoning) avg rating — 15, ratings — published Want to Read saving.

Re-arranging analogy pairs. I first noticed that, in an ordered-pair analogy, corresponding parts had to be the same part of speech (noun, verb, adjective, etc). Either A & B and C & D had to be the same part of speech, or A & C and B & D had to be the same.

This is in opposition to deductive reasoning or abductive the conclusion of a deductive argument is certain, provided the premises are certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument is probable, based.
