Joseph Walter Clark 3 April 2007 English 102 Lesson 5 Argument: Reading and Discussion 3. Adolf Hitler attempts to blur the lines between species and race in his essay in an attempt to convince his audience that the theory of evolution is applicable to the human race. Hitler’s assumption is a non sequitur as he draws a false connection between “a member of the same species” and the races of men. 4. Throughout the essay Hitler makes references which are either faulty or don’t apply to the claim that he is arguing. Supposedly, the theory of evolution gives the reasoning behind his assertion of the German’s master race, but he refers to “all great cultures of the past” and how they perished from blood poisoning, yet here he offers no examples of “great cultures” and even if he did the ancient civilizations of Rome, Greece, or China fell to outside invaders rather than racial impurity. 5. Even if Hitler had not made a hasty generalization about the “Germanic inhabitant of the American continent”, he has still drawn a post hoc assumption that racial purity resulted in the domination of America. Then he makes yet another fallacy in the form of a slippery slope by claiming they will remain in power if they avoid “defilement of the blood.” Discussion Questions 1
