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. [3] Annie has lots of energy. [4] 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.
