Initial Post Instructions
The reasoning used in inductive generalization is based on empirical observations and the inferences we draw from such observations. As such, it is closely allied to the scientific method. It is also the method used in polls and surveys; reports of the results of these polls and surveys can heavily influence decision making in health professions and other areas of public opinion.

For the initial post, address the following:

  • Using what you learn from the text and from research you conduct from other sources, analyze polls and surveys.
    • If we simply read a report of a poll, how can we know if the poll is reliable? What criteria do we use to analyze them?
    • What part do polls and surveys play in medical research?
    • Of what value are public opinion polls?
  • Inductive generalization is sometimes mistaken for deductive categorical reasoning.
    • Using what you’ve learned in your study of analogical reasoning, examine why this may happen?
    • What are the similarities in the two? The differences? 
    • Where does the analogy break down?

The website links provided in the Required Resources are a good starting place for your research.

    Hello Class,
    Welcome to Week 5! You may begin posting on Day 1, which is Monday, for credit.This week, we will be discussing the difference between providing an explanation and providing an argument. Along with your textbook reading for the week, here is an additional reading to consider for this week’s discussion:
    Archie, L. (2004). Deductive and inductive arguments. Retrieved December 26, 2018, from https://philosophy.lander.edu/logic/ded_ind.html
    Discussion Prompt:
    Using what you learn from the text and from research, you conduct from other sources, analyze polls and surveys. Discuss how can know if polls are reliable by simply reading a report of a poll. Discuss what criteria that we use to analyze polls. Discuss what part polls play in medical research. Discuss the value of public opinion polls.
    Inductive generalization is sometimes mistaken for deductive categorical reasoning. Using what you’ve learned in your study of analogical reasoning, examine why inductive generalization is sometimes mistaken for deductive categorical reasoning. Discuss the similarities and differences between inductive generalization and deductive categorical reasoning. Lastly, discuss why the analogy between inductive generalization and deductive categorical reasoning breaks down.
    Remember to use an outside resource in the main post, which needs to be on or before Wednesday. Don’t forget to look over the discussion rubric as a reference when you are writing your discussion posts. If you have any questions, please post in the Q&A forum or email me. Let’s get started!
