Generalizing

  • John Healey Mason
Chapter

Abstract

Generalizing is the reverse of specializing, and the two processes go very much hand in hand. Generalizing has to do with noticing patterns and properties common to several situations. A generalization is an expression or statement which can be specialized. It need not actually be true, but it must be able to be specialized to produce the particular cases which it generalizes, amongst others.
