Deductive Reasoning. A deductive argument begins with a general rule and moves toward a specific case. The book has been designed to offer maximal accessibility to the widest range of students (not only those majoring in philosophy) and assumes no formal training in elementary symbolic logic.

Inductive logic programming is a new research area formed at the intersection of machine learning and logic programming. While the influence of logic programming has encouraged the development of strong theoretical foundations, this new area is inheriting its experimental orientation from machine learning. Inductive Logic Programming will be an invaluable text for all students of computer.
