Deduction is only an interpretation of the implications of what is already known; it does not add new information. Mill's view of the relationship between deduction and induction can be seen in his critique of the syllogism (cf. McRae 1973:xxviii-xxx). For example, in the Aristotelian syllogism: "All men are mortal; Socrates is a man; therefore Socrates is mortal", both the major and the minor premise are inductive propositions. The major premise, "all men are mortal", is a generalization from experience, while the minor premise, "Socrates is a man", is an observation.
