CRS 225: Public Advocacy Professor: Greenky Fallacy Midterm Notes We were taught 12 fallacies, and 10 of the fallacies we will be tested on. You should be able to identify each and give an example of each one. When giving an example think about real life situations where each fallacy may have been presented. 1. False Analogy: Drawing comparisons between two incomparable things and assuming a common truth. 2. NonSequitur: Literally means “it does not follow”; the conclusion drawn is inconsistent or unrelated to the evidence given. 3. Straw Man: The author attacks an argument different from (and weaker than) the opposition’s best argument. 4. Casual Fallacies: Something is said to cause something else, when in fact they are related but the stated cause is incorrect. 5. Ad Hominem: Attacks against the arguer rather than the argument. 6. Hasty Generalization: The sample is too small to support an inductive generalization about a population. 7. Red Herring: An irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue. 8. Ad Populum: “The bandwagon effect”; If it’s popular and lots of people believe it, it must be true! 9. Appeal to Tradition: Conclusion that something must be done a certain way because it has been done that way. 10.Slippery Slope: A series of increasingly unacceptable consequences drawn from a seemingly harmless beginning.
