Critical thining

posted by .

What is the role of fallacies (rhetorical devices) in the critical thinking process? Offer an example of a fallacy that may have affecterd your reasoning regarding a recent that you made.

  • Critical thinking -

    They are asking for a fallacy that affected your reasoning that effected one of your decisions, so you can indicate that you understand what a fallacy is. We cannot do this for you.

    However, I searched Google under the key words "fallacy" to get these possible sources:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_fallacy
    http://www.fallacyfiles.org/
    http://www.iep.utm.edu/f/fallacy.htm

    Rather than copying one of the fallacies listed, use them to make you aware of one of your fallacies.

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
