Abductive Reasoning - What is the difference between a deductive and abductive argument?


Deductive reasoning provides the strongest inferences as they can confirm the truth of their conclusions. Inductive reasoning is more commonly used, but it doesn't guarantee truth, rather it provides conclusions that are likely to be true. Like inductive reasoning, abductive reasoning also deals in probabilities.
