Summary
"This book examines three areas in which abductive reasoning is especially important: medicine, science, and law. Douglas Walton introduces the foundations of abduction and shows how it has evolved historically into the framework of conventional wisdom in logic." "Discussions draw upon recent techniques used in artificial intelligence, particularly in the areas of multi-agent systems and plan recognition, to develop a dialogue model of explanation. Cases of causal explanations in law are analyzed using abductive reasoning, and all the components are finally brought together to build a new account of abductive reasoning."--Jacket
