An argument is valid if it is not possible for the premises to be true, but the conclusion is false. (Given the truth of the premises, the conclusion of a valid argument has to be true.) An argument is sound if it is valid and has all true premises. Many arguments are not deductive; many arguments don’t “try to be” logically valid, and that’s okay. Argument Analysis Step 1: Make the Argument Explicit (a) Identify the conclusion. What is the author arguing for? (b) Identify the explicit premises. What reasons does the author give to support the conclusions? (c) Identify any implicit premises. Are there other (potentially debatable) assumptions that the author takes for granted? Lecture 3: January 15 , 2016 Stevenson on Disagreement -Disagreement in Belief -Person A and Person B disagree on belief when person A and B believe a thing that can’t be true. -Disagreement in Attitude -Person A and Person B disagree in attitude when they both desire things that cant both happen.. *Agreement in belief does not necessarily produce agreement in attitude.
