Deductive Essay for a Logical Conclusion

Updated on May 6, 2015

Deductive Essays complex yet accurate are the basis for deductive thinking. It is a pattern of logical thinking lent from logical argument. These Essays begin with simplification in general and further apply to specific examples. Students are often given statements such as “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,” or "It's better to be safe than sorry," and later asked to come to an agreement if it’s acceptable or unacceptable providing instances that support the view.

An important feature of a deductive essay is its emphasis, clarity and focus. Deductive reasoning is based on the notion that given a set of circumstances or indications, one can lure a genuine hypothesis as to condition of the instance. More solely, a person can resolve an enigma or recognize a person if given enough evidence.

Requirements While Writing Deductive Essay

  • critical thinking expertise
  • planning and mentioning abilities
  • a lot of time

Deductive essays call for detailed investigation and serious thinking abilities. One should have a strong hand in English Language skills to deliver perfect and logical writing. Students working on deductive essay topics should be at ease with citing and structuring styles. With these essays, the writer is not evidencing or contradicting the reality of a statement instead he offers opinions and supports them with appropriate examples. Deductive essays are time specific and inflexible to combine with other tasks. The paragraphs in this type of Essay must be visibly systematized, arguing one specific issue and providing instances, particulars and explanation why the deductive conclusion is as it is.

Structure of a Deductive Essay

  • Introduction outlines the topic and thesis, enticing the audience’s attention.
  • The first paragraph defines the initial commonly accepted information or hints used as a base for reasoning.
  • The second paragraph emphases on the evidence, the information that is evaluated.
  • The analysis lastly results in a deductive conclusion, which balances the evidence against the premises.
  • The final paragraph of the essay contains the reiterated thesis and the deductive conclusion.

Explicitly, deductive essays’ reasoning take individual aspects, contemplate them against the present familiarity, and come to a conclusion. There are three parts to deductive reasoning. The first is called the PREMISE, the second part is called EVIDENCE and the last part is the CONCLUSION. Let’s consider the example below:

  1. Premise: all dogs are animals
  2. Evidence: Figaro is a dog
  3. Conclusion: Figaro is an animal.

A premise is an elementary fact or belief that is used as the origin for depicting conclusions. There may be quite a lot of PREMISES in a disagreement. The Evidence is the facts and figures you have before you, whether it is a story that is being analysed or something experimental and observed. The conclusion is the final analysis of the condition, based on stabilizing PREMISES with EVIDENCE.

We use deductive reasoning rather commonly in our day-to-day life. For example, say you look out of your window one morning and see the road is misty. There are numerous ways you could understand this scene. You might assume that it has rained. Based on your experience the most logical deduction is that a wet street is the effect of rainfall. There is a difference between proclaiming that a premise is incorrect, and proclaiming that the judgement of the argument is faulty. Deductive reasoning takes the most sensible, path, but is not certainly fool-proof.

Deductive reasoning is focused and generally used in law enforcement work, investigations, reporting, law, and, literary analysis. It focuses on a certain point, using factors and examples to lead to a particular conclusion.
