Two basic types of arguments:  Inductive Arguments: Specifics → General  (If it applies to one thing, it must apply to all 
things like it) 
Deductive Arguments: General → Specifics  (It it applies to all, it applies to each thing) ● Are inductive arguments strong? ● Are deductive arguments valid or sound (is the premise true)?  Ex. 
Premise: All politicians are married-- A senator is a politician 
Conclusion: He is married 
● This is valid because the argument follows through for this situation. It  is NOT sound because the premise won’t always be true.  Ex. 
Premise: All fish live in water -- Whales are not fish 
Conclusion: Whales don’t live in water 
● It’s invalid because the premises don’t make a true conclusion  4 Conditional Deductive Arguments (Hypotheses; if this, then that; if     p   , then     q   ) 1. If p is true, then is true -- Valid 
2. If is true, then p is true -- Invalid 
3. If p is not true, then q is not true -- Invalid 
4. If q is not true, then p is not true -- Valid 
Following these rules; If p then q and if q then r, then if then r
