Properties of inductive reasoning
UNSPECIFIED (2000) Properties of inductive reasoning. In: 6th International Summer School in Cognitive Science, 1999, NEW BULGARIAN UNIV, SOFIA, BULGARIA.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reviews the main psychological phenomena of inductive reasoning, covering 25 years of experimental and model-based research, in particular addressing four questions. First, what makes a case or event generalizable to other cases'! Second, what makes a set of cases generalizable? Third, what makes a property or predicate projectable? Fourth, how do psychological models of induction address these results? The key results in inductive reasoning are outlined, and several recent models, including a new Bayesian account, are evaluated with respect to these results. In addition, future directions for experimental and model-based work are proposed.
