• ## Study Notes

### Reasoning Types

• Inductive reasoning is a type of logical argument that proceeds from specific observations to a general conclusion, aiming to make a probable conclusion based on the evidence.
• A potential error associated with inductive reasoning is that it can lead to over-generalization or hasty conclusions, as the conclusion is not necessarily true even if the premises are true.

### Deductive Reasoning

• Deductive reasoning is a type of logical argument that proceeds from one or more general statements (premises) to a specific conclusion, aiming to reach a certain and absolute conclusion based on the premises.
