ABDUCTIO comes from “abduction“, known by other names such as: “inference of the best explanation”, “retroduction”, “hypothesis reasoning”, “innovation thinking“ and the “logic of discovery”.
But first and foremost, abduction is one of the three main types of inference:
– In practice, logical reasoning is often limited to rigorous reasoning, where the conclusion necessarily results from the premises, i.e. the “deduction”.
– However, there are two other significant inferences, “induction” and “abduction”: abduction is the one that requires the most collection of knowledge.
In deductive inferences, what is inferred is necessarily true if the premises are true.
The conclusion of a deductive inference is certain:
e.g., “All androids are robots” and “James is an android”
→ So, “James is (certainly) a robot”.
In inductive inferences, premises are considered to provide evidence of the truthfulness of the conclusion.
The conclusion of an inductive inference is probable (with a % of accuracy) and based on multiple observations :
e.g., “James is an android and a robot” and “John is an android and a robot” and “Justin is an android and a robot
→ So, “all androids are (probably) robots”.
In abductive inferences, the goal is to infer the most plausible premises that lead to a conclusion consistent with observations. Abductive conclusions are therefore described as “the best available” or “the most plausible”:
e.g., “All androids are robots” and “James is a robot”
→ So, “James is (plausibly) an android”.
In cognitive psychology, abduction is an intuitive thinking that removes improbable solutions.
