Summary: Martyn Hammersley gives an introduction to analytic induction as a social scientific method. Analytic induction claims to specify what is required if we are to archieve reliably sound conclusions about the causes of some type of outcome, and it is aimed at identifying the necessary and jointly sufficient conditions that must be met for the type of outcome concerned to occur.
