# Difference between Deduction and Induction

I would like to know what is the difference between deduction and induction. Mathematical induction I know well, but now I would like to look at these from a philosophical point of view.

All help is appreciated.

• I think that induction is based on making conclusion based on previous examples, such as "3,5,7 are primes, so every odd integer $>1$ is a prime". Deduction is based on logical reasoning rather than examples, such as "If we know that A imples B and A is true, then also B is true". But I'm no philospher, let's see if someone has a better answer... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deductive_reasoning – Peter Franek Nov 23 '16 at 9:54
