      Peirce holds that scientific thinking is characterized by a specific form of “abductive inference,” which can be set out as follows: The surprising fact, C, is observed. But if A were true, C. This book is about abduction, 'the logic of Sherlock Holmes', and about how some kinds of abductive reasoning can be programmed in a computer. The work brings together Artificial Intelligence and philosophy of science and is rich with implications for other areas such as, psychology, medical informatics, and linguistics.
