The following makes explicit the abductive reasoning
about the informants' social integration using descriptions derived from the status updates.
The neglect of abductive reasoning
entails a two-fold danger.
When placed within the context of a dual-process framework, abductive reasoning
might work either to further associative intuitions or to restrain them, depending both on the cognitive complexity of the case and the extent to which the fact finder is motivated to either defend or resist her own intuitions.
is more a reasoning pattern than a data fusion technique.
Arguably, progressive focusing based on abductive reasoning
can be seen as an intuitive, subjective and interpretive activity (Bringer et al.
involves the discovery of tentative inferences and search strategies for possible explanations.
consider the nature of the abductive reasoning
and its role in the acquisition of knowledge.
In summarizing his interview with Martin, Dunne (2006) suggests that a designer's approach includes: (1) an expectation of, and, therefore, a can-do attitude about, "wicked" problems, often including constraints which, Martin (2006) argues, even serve as a source of inspiration; (2) idea generation, or abductive reasoning
, in addition to the deductive and inductive reasoning used in business thinking; and (3) interactive skills, especially collaboration and empathy, most often with respect to peers and consumers.
In Sweetser's original analysis the polysemy of conjunctions such as because (compare John passed his exams because he worked hard, which links facts in the content domain, and John worked hard, because he passed his exams, which links steps in the reasoning developing in the epistemic domain) postulates a systematic conceptual distinction between domains, which explains constructional phenomena such as intonation and clause-order patterns, while distinguishing different kinds of reasonings involving causality, including the abductive reasoning
exemplified by the second example.
Instead, Lomasky holds that his argument is more similar to abductive reasoning
A theory of legal punishment might be recognizably Aristotelian because it draws on other features of virtue ethics instead, such as its distinctive moral particularism, its use of abductive reasoning
, (80) its rich conception of deliberation on ends, and its resulting account of responsibility for ends.
