Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 12

Re: Peirce List DiscussionJerry Rhee

The tools Peirce gave us for articulating complex cases of inquiry processes, as mediated by complex cases of triadic sign relations, are worth sharpening up to the point where we can make a significant difference in our understanding of real-world phenomena and the problems they present us.

Doing all that requires us to pore over the details of what Peirce — and even Aristotle and even by implication Plato’s Socrates — had to say about the three basic types of inference, all the while sorting out the degree to which their observations, guesses, and deductions fit the bill of the pragmatic maxim well enough to be useful.
