Ad hominem fallacy

Order Instructions

Q1.

 

 

Browse the news, political commentary, social media, or other media and find and instance of an ad hominem fallacy. This should be fairly easy to do–but, if you have trouble finding one. Do not use an argument from the lecture videos or the textbook

 

Explain the argument and why it is an example of an ad hominem fallacy. What kind of ad hominem argument is it? Sometimes there may be some reasoning in background assumptions–if you have doubt about the argument being a true ad hominem, explain and be honest. Here are working to develop our reasoning skills, not get things “just right”.

 

Try to analyze the context–what is the speaker trying do accomplish (this will require some interpretation–try to base interpretations on evidence)? What would be the best way for the person (who is under attack) to respond to the ‘argument’?

 

Q2.

 

 

 

Do the same thing, only this time try to find a slippery slope or a straw man argument–and if you cannot find an argument then create one yourself. Do not use an argument from the video lectures or the textbook.
