I am starting the first series of articles on inductive reasoning. I am planning to combine all these articles as a course: Science of Induction. I am sure there will be many changes to the course contents. Here is a planned/executed outline of the lecture:
- Introduction: Inductive Reasoning
- Types of Logical Reasoning
- Types of Inductive Reasoning and Examples
- Diversity Principle/Effect
- Inductive Reasoning In Real Life
- Why inductions tend to fail very often.
- The Bias Against Biases – An Evolutionary Perspective
- On the Artificial Intelligence and Inductive Reasoning
Some sections will have subsections, this is the overall outline in my mind. I will update this post and use it as a table of contents. So you can follow the development of the course from this article.
There is an amazing Wikipedia post on “Inductive Reasoning” which helped me a lot to construct the course syllabus. This course will possibly take 1-2 years to complete. Hence, if you have a scientific interest in inductive reasoning, I strongly recommend reviewing it.
