Argument and Inference. Volume 1. Proceedings of the 2nd European Conference on Education. 2018, 505-518
I explore the relation between narratives and analogies by discussing Miss Marple’s analogical reasoning. She compares target to source and constructs an analogy, which inevitably solves the problem at hand. In order to bring out the relevant similarities between the cases she tells stories of the target and matches them to known information about the source. I use the example of Uncle Henry to trace out and examine her thought processes.
