Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 21

Re: Peirce List Discussion • J. Rhee • T. Gollier • E. Taborsky Given a working hypothesis, as abduced in the previous post, the next phase of inquiry uses deductive inference to expand the implied consequences of the abductive hypothesis, … Continue reading
