A Hybrid Understanding of Causal Inference in Comparative Group Studies

This submission has open access
Submission Summary
In this article I briefly introduce a Hybrid Theory of Induction (HTI) and illustrate the kind of work it can do for us. I do so by exploring a particular kind of causal inference in comparative group studies from the perspective of the HTI. I show how the HTI provides a useful common framework to understand ongoing debates, methodological guidance for practitioners and conceptual guidance in assessing the strength of our inductive inferences.
