Week 3: Discussion Board

This Discussion Post will challenge our recognition of logical fallacies.

Please review the “Logical Fallacy Video,” the Purdue OWL Logical Fallacy webpage, and “Analyzing Arguments” pp.354-359, which all address fallacies. Once you are comfortable with fallacy definitions, follow the steps below to join the discussion:

  1. Find an example of a logical fallacy in an ad online.
  2. Post a link to your example on the Week #3 Discussion Board. Post by Thursday at 11:59 pm. DO NOT IDENTIFY THE FALLACY!
  3. Review the post directly above your post.
  4. Reply by identifying the logical fallacy posted and explain how the fallacy operates. Reply by Sunday at 11:59 pm.
  5. Spend time reviewing some of the other examples found.

Note: Ad hominem fallacies are the easiest to identify. Please challenge yourself and your classmates by finding another type of fallacy as your example.
