Modeling as Scientific Reasoning—The Role of Abductive Reasoning for Modeling Competence

Annette Upmeier zu Belzen, Paul Engelschalt, Dirk Krüger
2021 Education Sciences  
While the hypothetico-deductive approach, which includes inductive and deductive reasoning, is largely recognized in scientific reasoning, there is not much focus on abductive reasoning.  ...  Abductive reasoning to explain a phenomenon from the best fitting guess is important for model construction and may foster the deduction of hypotheses from the model and further testing them empirically  ...  and from abductive or inductive reasoning [12, 13] , both forms of logical inferences [14] .  ...

ABDUCTIVE REASONING: A CONTRIBUTION TO KNOWLEDGE CREATION IN EDUCATION

Javier Nunez Moscoso
2019 Cadernos de Pesquisa  
To that end, I explain how scientific research approaches and processes are founded on the three types of logical inference: deduction, induction and abduction, all of which underpin knowledge building  ...  Finally, I underscore how abduction could contribute to build a broader scientific project in the intercept between basic and praxeological research.  ...  Reasonings are usually deductive and inductive; however, abductive reasoning has a crucial role in scientific modeling processes.  ...

Transforming Problem-Based Learning through Abductive Reasoning

Noeman Mirza, Noori Akhtar-Danesh, Charlotte Noesgaard, Lynn Martin, Carolyn Byrne
2017 Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière  
In the field of nursing knowledge development, both inductive and deductive reasoning are emphasized and discussed (Chinn & Kramer, 2014) , but abductive reasoning is not recognized.  ...  Discussion Abductive reasoning and its focus on hypothesis creation offer a new way of examining our previous ideas about the PBL process, which is rooted in hypothetico-deductive reasoning.  ...

Abductive reasoning in logistics research

Gyöngyi Kovács, Karen M. Spens, Remko van Hoek

Digital support for abductive learning in introductory computing courses

Atanas Radenski
2007 ACM SIGCSE Bulletin  
Students who grew up browsing the Web are skilled in what is usually referred to as abduction, a reasoning process that starts with a set of specific observations and then generates the best possible explanation  ...  The study packs integrate a variety of digital resources: online self-guided labs, e-texts, tutorial links, sample programs, quizzes, and slides.  ...  Abduction and deduction intersect; for example, smart (reasonable, valid, strong) inductive generalizations are treated as instances of abduction [6] .  ...

The Abduction of Sherlock Holmes

David Carson
2009 International Journal of Police Science and Management  
This paper compares and contrasts the three forms of inferential reasoning and makes a case for articulating and developing the role of abduction in the work, and training, of police officers.  ...  However, his methodology, which was abduction rather than deduction, and which is innocently used by many real detectives, is rarely described, discussed or researched.  ...  This paper will explain abductive inferential reasoning, contrasting it with deduction and induction.  ...

Empirically analysing design reasoning patterns: Abductive-deductive reasoning patterns dominate design idea generation

Claus L. Cramer-Petersen, Bo T. Christensen, Saeema Ahmed-Kristensen
2019 Design Studies  
Reasoning is a fundamental process in design activity, and it provides a way to understand design behaviour. Theories and models of design propose reasoning that follows abductive-deductive patterns.  ...  The study concludes that understanding reasoning at early-stage idea generation processes is indicative of the mental models and abductive-deductive reasoning that are prevalent in design activity.  ...  We appreciate the comprehensive and constructive feedback from the reviewers helping to make the paper ready for publication.  ...

What is explanation?

A.D. Manning
2001 IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication  
From this, Hintikka concludes that Peirce was essentially correct in his distinction between deductive, inductive, and abductive reasoning.  ...  Unlike deduction and induction, abduction does not seem to be self-contained.  ...

An Explorer upon Untrodden Ground [chapter]

Stathis Psillos
2011 Handbook of the History of Logic  
Induction and abduction are such types of reasoning. What is more, together with deduction they constitute the three ultimate, basic and independent modes of reasoning.  ...  And he queried about the "logical rules" that abduction should conform to. But why should he think that abduction is a reasoning process?  ...

A Formal Framework for Trust Policy Negotiation in Autonomic Systems: Abduction with Soft Constraints [chapter]

Stefano Bistarelli, Fabio Martinelli, Francesco Santini
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that soft constraints can be used to model logical reasoning, that is deduction and abduction (and induction).  ...  The proposed framework can be used to automate the deduction-abduction negotiation processes.  ...  In Sec. 2 we summarize the fundamental notions about soft constraints, while Sec. 3 shows how classical deduction, abduction and induction operations can be implemented by using constraint composition  ...
