However, induction can yield more certainty
than deduction. For example:
We can reason by deduction that if all men are mortal then Socrates is mortal because he is a man. A useless round about argument though since Socrates is dead.
However, by induction we can argue with more certainty that if person A, B, C....are mortal then there is a higher probability that Socrates is mortal because persons A, B, C...being mortal would imply that some men may not be mortal (therefore we may not be able to argue deductively since we can't use "If all men are mortal" then "Socrates must be mortal"
All empirical generalisations are more
uncertain that the instances of them so it is better to use induction
Deduction is better for general prepositions i.e. a priori statements e.g. 2 + 2 = 4
