    hypothesis |hīˈpäθəsis| noun ( pl. -ses |-ˌsēz|) a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation : professional astronomers attacked him for popularizing an unconfirmed hypothesis. • Philosophy a proposition made as a basis for reasoning, without any assumption of its truth. ORIGIN late 16th cent.: via late Latin from Greek hupothesis ‘foundation,’ from hupo ‘under’ + thesis ‘placing.’

    hypothesis is an assumption we take before we go about proving it.

    A hypothesis is used in indirect proofs, and proofs by contradiction.
