Deduction, Induction, and Hypothesis

Title

Deduction, Induction, and Hypothesis

Description

Originally published in the Popular Science Monthly, vol. 13 (August 1878): 470-482. This is the sixth and final installment of six papers in Peirce's "Illustrations of the Logic of Science" series.

According to Houser and Kloesel (Eds.), The Essential Peirce, vol. 1 (Bloomington: Indiana, 1992), p. 186, in this paper, "Peirce continues his 'Illustrations' [series] with a discussion of the three kinds of reasoning (deduction, induction, hypothesis) based on the general form of syllogistic argument composed of rule, case, and result. With examples from the history of science, he demonstrates that hypothesis is different from induction proper."
