Quote from ‘Minute Logic: Chapter I. Intended Characters of this Treatise’
Arguments are of three kinds, Deduction, Induction, and what I call Abduction [—] If the facts directly asserted in the argument compell or tend to compell the fact asserted in the conclusion, so that the inference takes place by force, the argument is Deductive.
MS [R] 425:120-121
