Standardize an Argument Tuesday, September 6, 2016 12:53 PM • Standardize an Argument ○ (stated), [unstated] ○ A puppy is the perfect pet for Annie. She has lots of energy and loves spending time outdoors. (1) Puppy has lots of energy. (2) Puppy loves outdoors.  Annie has lots of energy.  Annie loves outdoors. Therefore - tf (5) A puppy is the perfect pet for Annie. ○ If Annie cannot own a cat, you have to justify and standardize the argument for why first. (1) Annie is allergic to cats Therefore (2) Annie cannot own a cat. Then.. The conclusion of the subargument is linked as a premise in the main argument. What is a good argument? Thursday, September 8, 2016 1:03 PM • True Premises+ Proper Form= Good Argument ○ Knowledge and truth are not the same thing ○ We could say Socrates is a human, and it may be false if a dog is named Socrates. Knowledge tells us he is indeed a human, but truth says that Socrates is actually a dog in this circumstance. • Use premises appropriate for the audience ○ If a premise is true, it may not be evaluated as such if the audience does not know enough to determine it is true. • Proper form: ○ If the premises were true, the conclusion would also be true. ○ **Can have proper form and still be a false argument. EX) Socks are hats, hats are mountains. Therefore,socks are mountains. IF the premises were true, the conclusion would also be true. Therefore,it is proper form, but not a good argument.
