Late papers will not be accepted. Each of the following texts contain at least one of the fallacies discussed in the assigned text and/or Prof. Weinberg's lecture. For each one, first, identify which fallacy it is an instance of, and explain in a sentence or two why you think it is an instance of that fallacy. Second, since each one is a fallacy, that means that its reasoning is invalid. Describe a counterexample that shows it is invalid, in enough detail so that we can easily see that it is a situation where the premises are all true but the conclusion is false. (If you think that any of them have more than one fallacy, that's fine -- you only need to write up one fallacy per exercise, though.) A. "Seeing that the eye and hand and foot and every one of our members has some obvious function, we must therefore believe that in like manner a human being has a function over and above these particular functions." (Aristotle) Fallacy of Composition; Because he breaks up the body parts and says they have a function, but then states that our function as humans is more than with our hands, feet, or eyes.

    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.
