Is the argument
(Boss, 2012, p. 184)
Are there any unstated premises and
conclusions (Boss, 2012, p. 184)?
Fallacies are devoid of completeness,
because I may be omitting premises or
simply just not want to be truthful.
• My personal example of this is when
I had an argument with my friend.
I told my friend that his desire to
attend a community college was
stupid. However, I left out that
premise that I had a personal bias
against his choice of colleges and
why I had those feelings.
A sound argument is one in which the
premises are true and they support the
conclusion (Boss, 2012, p. 184)
• My personal experience with
I was trying to win an argument with
my mom about a friend’s character
and since I didn’t have premises that
were true, I chose to personally
attack the person I was talking about
to make my point “seem” correct
when in fact, it was not true.
• In conclusion I have learned that the process for evaluating arguments is
crucial to becoming an effective and fair critical thinker.
When it comes to fallacies, I have a lot of work to do when it comes to
overcoming personal biases, errors in thinking, and examining my own
attitudes and world views as well as how these relate to the world in which I
live and also the way I communicate with others both verbally and in the
written and professional worlds.
My love of wisdom serves me well as it makes me an excellent student, a more
effective critical thinker and in my future career, it really will make me a more
effective boss, teacher, and happy useful individual.
