What is truth according to the politics of america?



History of Evidence

Rules came from common law and were established by the Supreme Court until in the mid 1970’s Congress altered them

Truth

In the politics of America, truth is run by combat because we have an adversarial system in which the judge and the jury decide what is “true"

Judge and jury use reasoning to decide which side presented the “more true” side of the facts regardless of which side is phenomenologically true — meaning which is the absolute truth, not the assumed truth

Reasoning

Inductive: when two facts do not go hand in hand

you know a fact is inductive if you can fight it by showing a comparison like the ones below  We also discuss several other topics like When does chromatin remodeling occur?

ex. if pregnant than a woman… but just by saying someone is a woman does not mean they have to be pregnant  


What is inductive in the history of evidence?



ex. an EEG reading being flat on a 26 year old means they are dead… but an EEG reading being flat on a 6 week old embryo does not mean they are dead Deductive: when two facts can easily be switched back and forth

truth preserving and allows conclusions to be drawn based on what you provide in the facts

allows for assumptions to be drawn

ex. if A equals B and B equals C then… you assume A also equals C

to determine if a fact is inductive or deductive you can draw it out one step farther and see if the facts still allow you to make an assumption to the analogy  

real case examples:

Cotton v. AE (2011) - case about principle and agent factors

Copeland v. Homana - cannot sue principle if agent is unpresent


What is deductive in the history of evidence?



Don't forget about the age old question of An individual demand curve relates to what?

S.E. lines

Other topics covered

examples of distinctions:

owner v. thief - owner gets property

owner v. defrauding - owner gets property If you want to learn more check out What are some things you can do to keep your kitchen clean and safe?
If you want to learn more check out What is the layer of dividing cells at the base of epidermis?
Don't forget about the age old question of Which one of the following molecules in nonpolar?
We also discuss several other topics like How many oxygen atoms are present after the reaction ends

owner v. thief v. innocent 3rd party - owner gets property  

owner v. defrauding v. innocent 3rd party - owner gets property

equivalent statements using one fact:

all ravens are black

no ravens are not black

these two statements use the same fact but are worded differently and therefore the fact can be explained in a multitude of ways
