Logical Fallacies, essentially, are flaws in an argument. A logical fallacy distracts the reader, and that can weaken the point you are making. This is particularly problematic when you are trying to persuade the reader, or make a strong case for your own stance on a topic.
Please go through the website on logical fallacies, found in the Readings and Resources section, above. Once you have understood logical fallacies, choose three that stand out to you.
Then, complete the following prompts for each of the three fallacies you have chosen:
- Write the name of the fallacy
- Define the fallacy using your own words. Briefly discuss how the fallacy weakens the focus of a paper.
- Discuss ways that you can revise your work to avoid using these fallacies
Using the first person point of view is allowed in this exercise. Write one paragraph for each of the three fallacies you chose; consider a full paragraph to average 5-7 sentences.
