In the required reading this week we learned about the following types of arguments: Deductive arguments, statistical syllogisms, arguments from analogy, appeals to authority, and inductive generalizations.

Choose one of these forms and discuss what can make for good arguments of that type. Provide at least one good example (in standard form) and one bad example of this type of argument, and explain what makes each of them good or bad. How do we know if an argument of this form is strong or weak (or valid/invalid in the deductive case) in general? What can we do better to evaluate instances of this form when they occur in daily life?

Guided Response:

Post a minimum of three responses, two of which must be to your classmates. The third response could be to a classmate or your instructor. Be sure to post on three separate days throughout the week to promote further engagement and discussion. Each response should be a minimum of 50 words.
