Fallacy Collection Assignment Part I This assignment requires you to look at the past and the present use of the fallacy you choose. 1. Identification: Find at least two examples of a dominant fallacy used repetitively in Act IV of Macbeth. Clearly identify and define the type of fallacy committed in any of the characters of Macbeth. Quote the fallacy specifically and state who says the quote. Use Shakespearean quotes only, not the translated sparknotes. 2.Fallacy Analysis: Include an analysis of the fallacy, indicating how and why the reasoning employed is deficient. Show what the arguer fails to do or fails to prove, and why that makes the argument fallacious. In addition, explain how serious or grave the fallacy is: some fallacies are relatively minor, others entail major shortcomings. Not all fallacies invalidate an argument altogether. In other words, call the character out on his argument and justify whether or not the entire argument is false.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
