Here are the questions I would like you to answer in your Reply:
LET’S PRACTICE: Identify the sample, the target, and the property. Then say whether the argument is an inductive generalization or an analogical argument. HINTS or a “re-cap” are included below the 4 items.
Sample – always in P
Property – usually explicitly in both P & C, but always implied
Target – always in C
INDUCTIVE GENERALIZATIONS (also called Enumerative Induction or Inductive Enumeration) – part-to-whole
*The sample is a subset of the target class
It is going to be hot on Monday. So, it is going to be hot all week.
Here, the sample is Monday, the target is all week, and the property is being hot. It is an inductive generalization because Monday is a part of the week.
*The sample is not a subset of the target item (the sample and target are “terms of the comparison,” or “analogues”)
It is going to be hot on Monday. So, it is going to be hot on Tuesday.
Here, the sample is Monday, the target is Tuesday, and the property being hot. It is an analogical argument because the sample is not included in the target; that is, Monday is not a part of Tuesday.
KEY: Rather than thinking of inductive reasoning as moving from the “smaller to the greater” (which is not always the case), it is better to think of it as “moving from what is known, to what is unknown.” It is because of this feature of inductive reasoning, that we think of it as (potentially) generating knowledge. Just remember the problem of induction, and that a “gap” always exists!
Information that may be helpful:
Sample and Target
The evidence in all inductive arguments is contained in the premises, and the evidence itself is called our sample. Whatever we are saying is true of our sample, is called the feature (or property) in question. It is usually found in both the premise(s) and the conclusion. In the conclusion we talk about something new, or expand our knowledge (hopefully, if it is in fact a good inductive argument). This “new thing” in the conclusion is called the target:
P: I’ve met sixteen hippies, and they were all cool people.
C: All hippies are cool people.
Here, “sixteen hippies” is the sample, “all hippies” is the target, and “cool people” is the feature. Enumerative arguments move from part to whole.
P1: Most students have part-time jobs.
P2: Deshaun is a student.
C: Deshaun has a part-time job.
Here, “most students” is the sample, “Deshaun” is the target, and “having a part-time job” is the feature. Inductive syllogisms move from whole to part.
Analogical arguments are inductive arguments. They are extremely common and we use them frequently in daily life. Analogical arguments all contain claims which assert that because two things are alike in certain respects, they are alike in an additional respect.
Unlike enumerative and inductive syllogisms, in analogical inductive arguments the sample is not a subset of the target item (the sample and target are “terms of the comparison,” or “analogues”). Consider this analogical inductive argument:
It is going to be hot on Monday. Monday is a day of the week, but so is Tuesday. So, it is going to be hot on Tuesday.
Here, the sample is Monday, the target is Tuesday, and the property is being hot. The “analogs” are Monday and Tuesday, respectively. It is an analogical argument because the sample is not included in the target; that is, Monday is not a part of Tuesday. If you compare this to the hippie argument above, you can see there that the sixteen hippies mentioned in the sample is included in “all hippies” (the target). Analogical reasoning moves from part to part.
Here are three more analogical arguments:
Rather than thinking of inductive reasoning as moving from the “smaller to the greater” (which is not always the case, as we have now seen), it is better to think of them as “moving from what is known, to what is unknown.” It is because of this feature of inductive reasoning that we think of it as (potentially) generating knowledge. It doesn’t always, and there are limitations to this kind of knowledge, but it works well in much of our everyday decision-making.
Notice above that the terms of the analogies must be stressed by the inductive reasoner, since all of the arguments omit differences that necessarily exist between the sample and the target. Differences must exist, since if one thing is being compared to another, they cannot be the same thing. Be wary of the differences. It is often unwise to uncritically accept the conclusions of analogical arguments.
