Abstract

Following a Toulmian account of argument analysis and evaluation, I offer a unitary schema for, so called, deductive and inductive types of analogical arguments. This schema is able to explain why certain analogical arguments can be said to be deductive, and yet, also defeasible.

A unitary schema for arguments by analogy

University of Windsor

Following a Toulmian account of argument analysis and evaluation, I offer a unitary schema for, so called, deductive and inductive types of analogical arguments. This schema is able to explain why certain analogical arguments can be said to be deductive, and yet, also defeasible.
