Technical Vocab – PHIL 1010 Lecture 2 Key: Terms – ___ Topics – ___ Important – ___  What is an argument? o Arguments are statements that represent an inference. o Premises are statements that support a conclusion.  What is an inference? o Inferences are thoughts that we believe is true.  Inferences can take place conscious or unconsciously. o Inferences are implicit while arguments are explicit. o Implicit thoughts are implied, suggested, or understood but not directly expressed. o Explicit thoughts are usually overly expressed.  Sentences & Statements o Sentences are grammatically correct string of words. o Declarative sentences can be either true or false. o Statements are or a part of declarative sentences that may be true or false. o A question or a command is a sentence but not a statement.  Kinds of statements o Conjunctions are statements that are connect by words such as “and” or “but”. o Disjunctions are statements connect by the word “or”  Statement & Propositions o Propositions are the content of a statement. o Two or more propositions may express the same propositions.  Conditional statements o Conditional statements are usually premises or conclusions of arguments. o Conditional statements can’t be arguments by itself. o Some conditional statements represent inferences and may be expressed as arguments if implicit arguments are made explicit.  Necessary & Sufficient o Conditional statements can also express relations between necessary and sufficient conditions.  If antecedent, then consequent. o Antecedents are sufficient conditions: if the antecedent is true, it guarantees that the consequent is true. o Consequents are necessary conditions: the consequent must be true if antecedent is true. 2  Necessary & Contingent o Necessary events happen no matter what. o Contingent events may or may not happen, depending on the conditions.  Deductive & Inductive validity o Deductive reasoning is taking a set of facts and and creating more facts from the fact given. In deductive arguments, if the premises are true, then the conclusion is always true. o Premises can’t deny conclusions without contradictions. o Inductive reasoning is looking for a pattern and then generalizing. Generalizing may or may not be true. In Inductive arguments, if the premises are true, the conclusion is likely but not always true. o The strength of inductive arguments depends on its form and content.  Sound & Cogent o A sound argument has a deductively valid structure, a structure that must be true, and true premises. o A cogent argument has an inductively strong structure, a structure that may or may not be true, and true premises.  A Priori & A Posteriori 3 o A priori is knowledge that you know prior from experience. o A Posteriori is knowledge you gain through or after experience.  Form & Content o Content refers to what an argument, sentence, or passage is about, including topic or subject. o Form refers to the structure of a sentence or argument including the relationship between premises and conclusion. 4
