Logic and Lack of Logic in an Argument
Number of pages:
This 5 page report
discusses the assumptions made in a hypothetical argument
regarding Waymarsh State College who go to their state
legislature to protest budget cuts. The “logic” used by the
legislature in ignoring the students was that since only 200
students protested at the capitol, the remaining 11,800 students
must not care about either the issue or their education. The
argument presented does not follow the “rules” of a logical
argument and presents a conclusion that is clearly not warranted.
