Assignment: Argument Evaluation
· Read the article “Controlling Irrational Fears After 9/11” on pp. 456–458 of Appendix 1.
· Identify at least two arguments in the article. Outline the premises and conclusions of each argument you find. Then, answer the following questions for each argument, making sure to explain how you arrived at your answers. 650 words or more.
o Do the premises sufficiently support the conclusions?
o Are the arguments either deductively valid or inductively strong, or are they invalid or weak?
o Are the premises true or plausibly true, or are they difficult to prove?
Note that you may choose to evaluate invalid or weak arguments, but you must describe how they are invalid or weak.
Read our previous discussion of these questions.
