Consequently, he argued, there is no such thing as the “logic of discovery ”. g. Hanson, 1962; Schum, 1994, Chapter 9; Thagard, 1988, Chapter 4) have argued that Peirce’s (1931) notion of abductive reasoning has certain features that could mark it as an imaginative type of reasoning that allows us to discover new hypotheses or theories.
Both Thagard (1988); Josephson and Josephson (1994) argue that in order to be considered as the best, a hypothesis should better conform to the evidence in a case, that is, the hypothesis should explain the observations in the case better than the other available hypotheses. Other considerations when determining the best hypothesis are, for example, whether the hypothesis itself is inherently plausible, how many plausible alternatives there are and how thorough the search for alternative hypotheses has been.

Explanatory reasoning, however, can be modelled in two ways. g. g. “fire”) can be inferred. When thus alternative explanations can be derived, a choice should be made with some priority mechanism. With causal generalizations prediction can also be modus-ponens-style but explanation must be done by “affirming the consequent”: given the consequent (the effect) the antecedent (the cause) is inferred since if the cause is true it implies the effect by modus ponens on the causal generalization (cf.
