The Oxford English Dictionary defines induction as “the process of inferring a general law or principle from the observations of particular instances”. This defines precisely what we would like to call inductive inference. On the other hand, we regard inductive reasoning as a more general concept than inductive inference, namely, as a process of reassigning a probability (or credibility) to a law or proposition from the observation of particular instances.
