« Back to Glossary Index

A form of logical inference in which you start with an observation and jump to a theoretical explanation that is subsequently tested to see if the explanation fits the observation. Abductive logic leads to a series of hunches or educated guesses about what caused or causes the observations, but these might actually prove false. (See also inductive logic, deductive logic.)
