Analogical Reasoning in Description Logics [chapter]

Claudia d'Amato, Nicola Fanizzi, Floriana Esposito
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This work presents a framework, founded on multi-relational instancebased learning, for inductive (memory-based) reasoning on knowledge bases expressed in Description Logics.  ...  In a preliminary experimentation, we show that the method is sound. Besides it is actually able to induce new knowledge that might be acquired in the knowledge base.  ...  [10] , approximate reasoning (see the discussion in [11] ), case-based reasoning [7] and inductive-analogical forms such as inductive generalization [5] and specialization [9] .  ...

1990 Computational Linguistics  
This has led to the formulation of step (or situated) logic, an approach to reasoning in which the formalism has a kind of real-time self-reference that affects the course of deduction itself.  ...  To do this, the agent’s reasoning must be “situated” in a temporal environment.  ...

It is implemented in C++.  ...  Jena is implemented in Java. Pellet Pellet is an open-source OWL descriptive logic reasoned [12] that is implemented in Java. Pellet can be downloaded and included in other applications.  ...

Plantin's L'argumentation

Claude Gratton
1999 Informal Logic  
The chapter on analogies includes better discussions of precedents, induction, the function of analogical arguments in moral reasoning, and the explanative function of some analogies.  ...  This description contains in fact two arguments from analogy that should be distinguished, and that would be expressed more clearly in a standard form.  ...

Patterns of Language - A Population Model for Language Structure [article]

Robert John Freeman
1996 arXiv   pre-print
A key problem in the description of language structure is to explain its contradictory properties of specificity and generality, the contrasting poles of formulaic prescription and generative productivity  ...  I argue that this is possible if we accept analogy and similarity as the basic mechanisms of structural definition.  ...  Logical Description. Just as I think analogy will prove indispensable to model the processes of language, logical grammars will probably prove indispensable for their description.  ...

1994 Mathematical Reviews  
The imprecise term ‘reasoning by analogy’ refers to a type of reasoning in which the type of proof being sought is sharply influenced by the style of proof that was successfully used to prove related theorems  ...  The problem proposed for research asks one to find criteria that an automated reasoning program can apply to determine whether to attack a given question with reasoning by analogy.  ...

These objective criteria are to be found in “phenomenological” descriptions of “kinds’’ of mathe- matical reasoning.  ...  Differences and analogies between first and second order logic are reflected in these results. They should prove useful in classroom presentation of the subject. L. E. Sanchis (Syracuse, N.Y.)  ... 

How to Disagree About Argument Schemes

Fábio Perin Shecaira
2016 Informal Logic  
Argumentation theorists often disagree about which scheme best represents a given type of argument (e.g. argument by analogy, argument from authority, inference to the best explanation).  ...  Unfortunately, authors sometimes become involved in fruitless pseudo-agreement because they fail to perceive that their supposedly competing schemes are means for achieving different (but compatible) practical  ...  Acknowledgements: For helpful comments and discussion, I would like to thank Pat Bondy, Luís Duarte d'Almeida, Ben Hamby, Katharina Stevens, and two anonymous reviewers for Informal Logic.  ...

Such assimilation is at the basis of symbolism, in which an image is taken for the real sensation.  ...  The past is in present consciousness, not as simplification or analogy, but as a present feeling. The function accomplishing this projection may be called thought.  ... 

Norton's material theory of analogy

Paul Bartha
2020 Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A  
Both facts and quasi-formal criteria have roles to play in a theory of analogical reasoning.  ...  In its place, he offers the "material theory of analogy": each analogical inference is "powered" by a local fact of analogy rather than by any formal schema.  ...  As a preliminary point, we can distinguish between descriptive and normative goals for a theory of analogical reasoning. There is one principal descriptive goal: � Understanding.  ...

Study on Cultivation of Primary Students' Ability to Generate Hypotheses in Science Learning

2018 Advances in Educational Technology and Psychology  
Hypothesis gives a direction to an inquiry and also plays an important role in connecting students' preconcepts and new concepts.  ...  Teachers should help students develop their ability to generate hypotheses through simulating real life situation, making use of materials from daily life suitably and teaching students logical thinking  ...  The logical reasoning methods of science learning mainly include: inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning and analogical reasoning.  ...

Legal Progress Through Pragma-Dialectics? Prospects Beyond Analogy and E Contrario

Hendrik Kaptein
2005 Argumentation: an international journal on reasoning  
Pragma-dialectical analysis of arguments by analogy and e contrario seem to fall foul to the rigors of logical analysis, in which problems or even concepts of analogy and e contrario seem to disappear.  ...  Still, pragma-dialectics and logical analysis of legal argument are best seen as fruitfully supplementing each other in ongoing research of ever evolving legal argument.  ...  New Jersey Steamboat Co. case paradigmatically serves to show what matters in legal reasoning by analogy (see Golding, 1984, pp. 46 ff., for a description of the case and an analysis of analogy rather  ...
