What Is Deduction

Deduction is the process of reasoning from two general premises, or things that are known, to a specific conclusion. These three parts are:

A. major premise

B. minor premise

C. conclusion

For instance, we know, A, that dogs have four legs, and we know, B, that Fido is a dog. Therefore, since A and B are true, we can conclude with certainty that, C, Fido has four legs.

From this example, you may see that a deductive argument is sound when the premises are true, and the conclusion logically follows from the premises.
