The thesis defended below is that the arguments associated with many common uses of analogy in reasoning have a simple, valid deductive structure. These uses of analogy are not properly accommodated by accounts of analogy in which the associated arguments have an inductive (Mill 1889), abductive (Peirce 1960), or eductive (W.E. Johnson 1964) structure. In this discussion I will stress the distinction between the activity of arguing and the passive entity which is the associated argument.
