Weak analogy-some arguments from analogy are based on analogies that are so weak that the argument is too weak for the purpose to which it is put. how strong an argument needs to be depends upon the context in which it occurs, and the use that it is intended to serve. thus, in the absence of other evidence, and as a guide to further research, even a very weak analogical argument may be strong enough. therefore, while the strength of an argument from analogy depends upon the strength of the analogy in its premises, it is not solely determined by that strength.
