Classifications of Arguments by Analogy Part I. A comprehensive review of proposals for classifying arguments by analogy
This paper, composing of two parts, is an attempt to systematically review proposals by authors for classifying arguments by analogy. A closer to 700 documents (journals, books, etc.) have been read and the aim is to provide a comprehensive review in order to give the reader a clear overview of various subdivisions and classifications of analogical arguments made by various theorists. The review should be beneficial for any scientific discipline that employs analogical argument in some way or other. The second part follows continuously and both should be read as one unit in order to fully grasp the content.
