Week 2 D02 Valid v Invalid Arguments Chapters 5 and 6 of Critical Thinking cover fallacies and rhetoric Can you think of two examples of persuasion not found in the text that are not valid arguments according to the text Why are your examples of persuasion invalid arguments Please number your examples RESPONSE 1 I may be way off base with answering this question but hey here goes 1 Lying This can be used in persuasion by using an argument that is not valid at all but plays off the emotional or mental state of the person that you are trying to persuade You are just creating what that person wants or needs to hear to get them to react the way you want them to The information is not valid in any way or reliable in any way though you used it anyways to persuade another person whether in a positive or negative way This can be used to envoke a positive reaction to a negative such as the old quotDoes this make me look fatquot that you can answer with a lie such as quotNoquot so that the person asking feels better and does not have their feelings hurt uninterntionally 2 Bribery Here you are using an quotIf thanquot sort of statement that allows you to pull emotional and mental quotstringsquot to get someone to act in a way that betters your position This can be used to override their logical thought process by envoking emotional strain that may make them act in a different way then if it was never propositioned The bribe takes the place of reasoning such as when a Judge rules in favor of one side in the courtroom because when he does he knows that he will get political backing by someone who gains from his decision or something like that RESPONSE 2 l Enthymeme a three part argument with an unstated assumption that must be true for the premises to lead to the conclusion purposely leaving information out Part of the argument is missing because it is assumed therefore it cannot be valid there is not enough information to draw a logical conclusion 2 Leverage using something of interest to the other person as a way to in uence their decision In this example the decision is made before the arguments are heard or data is presented
