Slide 1

Taking a gander at Logos Syllogisms, Enthymemes, and Logical Fallacies

Slide 2

If A = B and B = C, then A = C What is a syllogism? a particular technique for consistent derivation (moving from the general to the specific) each syllogism contains no less than three sections: a noteworthy start (worldwide supposition) a minor introduce (particular claim) a conclusion It's sort of like straightforward math…

Slide 3

all men are mortal (real commence) (minor preface) Socrates is a man A case of a syllogism (conclusion) Socrates is mortal

Slide 4

all men are mortal all things mortal men Socrates is a man Socrates is mortal A visual representation

Slide 5

all warm blooded creatures have hair (real introduce) (minor introduce) angle don't have hair A case of a syllogism (conclusion) fish are not vertebrates

Slide 6

all well evolved creatures have hair all things with hair angle don't have hair warm blooded creatures angle A visual representation fish are not warm blooded creatures

Slide 7

All ladies are awful drivers. awful drivers lady Jean is a lady. Jean is an awful driver. A visual representation This illustration is for instructive purposes and does not mirror the sentiments of the educator nor of Moraine Valley Community College.

Slide 8

What is an enthymeme? now and again called a "truncated syllogism" a syllogism without expressing either the major or minor preface (it is inferred) less formal than the syllogism here and there more enticing

Slide 9

A case of an enthymeme We can't believe this man since he has prevaricated himself previously. Enthymemes are frequently "in light of the fact that" announcements.

Slide 10

Those who lie themselves can't be trusted. (real start) This man lied himself previously. (minor preface) (conclusion) This man can't be trusted. The syllogism behind this enthymeme…

Slide 11

Enthymemes are here and there used to conceal the fundamental supposition whereupon a contention is based. Discover it and test it. Be careful. Think Critically.

Slide 12

What are the implicit suppositions? I fizzled that course in light of the fact that the educator didn't care for me. Supposition : The educator falls flat understudies he doesn't care for. I'm not astonished he made the group. All things considered, his dad is the administrator of schools. Suspicion : The director gives unique favors to his family If I'd just taken my supervisor to lunch all the more frequently, I could have gotten that raise. Suspicion : The manager denies raises to individuals who don't take him to lunch all the time.

Slide 13

Logical Fallacies Avoiding the Pitfalls of Good Reasoning

Slide 14

Looking at the Negative Space We can learn much about rationale by considering what is not legitimate—cases of where rationale separates, consistent false notions.

Slide 15

illustrations false quandary straw man mysterious power biased dialect What is a consistent misrepresentation? botches we make in rationale while introducing our contentions

Slide 16

case illustration Either you're for me or against me. America—cherish it or abandon it. False Dilemma a set number of choices (typically two) is given, while in all actuality there are more alternatives.

Slide 17

case People who contradict war in Iraq presumably simply don't care for G.W. Shrubbery. Be that as it may, we need a hostile activity against Iraq to secure the world. Straw Man the creator assaults a contention which is not quite the same as, and normally weaker than, the restriction's best contention.

Slide 18

case Studies demonstrate that left-gave individuals are more smart than right-given individuals. Mysterious power the creator alludes to some wellspring of power however does not name the source nor clarify its authenticity

Slide 19

illustration All great Americans bolster the perspectives of the president of the United States. Right-disapproved of individuals will unquestionably concur with that. Biased dialect the creator utilizes dialect that assaults a man for having opposite perspectives; this assault might be unobtrusive however moves the concentrate far from the issue

Slide 20

Don't let your convictions or normal information daze you to broken rationale. Genuine versus substantial contentions genuine contention = a contention with a conclusion that individuals regularly consider to be reality in view of their common experience or across the board conviction legitimate contention = a contention with a conclusion that sensibly takes after its basic presumption paying little heed to whether the suspicion is valid or not

Slide 21

all vegetables beets Is this valid, legitimate, or both? All vegetables are green. Beets are vegetables. In this manner, beets are green. great rationale, yet a defective presumption: legitimate yet not genuine

Slide 22

individuals all things everlasting Is this valid, substantial, or both? No person is undying. God is not a person. In this way, God is interminable. flawed rationale however, as per numerous individuals' convictions, a genuine articulation: invalid contention, yet a genuine conclusion (as per numerous individuals' convictions) God

Slide 23

plants Is this valid, legitimate, or both? All weeds are plants. A bloom is a plant. Along these lines, all weeds are blooms. Keep in mind, in all legitimate deductive contentions the decision is a vital result of the premises. The conclusion here does not consistently take after as a vital outcome; along these lines this contention is invalid . weeds blooms
