According to Jean Piaget's theories on cognitive development, transductive reasoning or transductive logic is the primary form of reasoning used during the preoperational stage of development. This stage occurs approximately from the ages of 2-7. Transductive reasoning employs the following reasoning: "If A causes B today, then A always causes B." As such it based on a generalization from instance to instance, so it is neither deductive or inductive in logical terms
