INDUCTIVE AND DEDUCTIVE METHODS

 

72 The method called inductive offers great advantages.

- It serves in the presentation of facts (such as biblical events,

- liturgical actions, the life of the Church, and daily life) and in the consideration and examination of those facts in order that in them may be recognised the meaning they have in the Christian mystery. This method is in harmony with the economy of revelation and with one of the fundament processes of the human spirit, one that comes to grasp intelligible mealtimes through visible things, and also with the particular characteristic of knowledge of the faith, that is, a knowing through signs.

 

The inductive method does not exclude the deductive, but rather even requires it. The deductive method is used in interpreting and explaining the facts by proceeding from their causes. The deductive synthesis usually manifests its full force, however, when the inductive process has already been cambered out.
