Group Exercise #2 You will be placed in groups by the instructor. Your task should be completed in person or online or in a combination of the two. Again, one copy, per group, via Mail, and include on top only those who participate in the project. Same grade for all group members. You are to read Epstein on formal logic, pp. 359-384. This material will familiarize you with basic procedures in syllogistic reasoning and truth tables. In addition, we will have online work in our weekly discussions with these topics. Look at exercise #16 on p. 383 of Epstein. I want you to analyze the argument using either your knowledge of categorical syllogisms or truth tables. Your work should be at least 1000 words long.

Be sure to reference the concepts in Epstein that are helpful, including definitions that are helpful to show me you understand the basic concepts. In this analysis, what does it tell you about the strength of the arugment and the validity of the argument. Finally, does this in any way effect your own acceptance or rejection of the argument? Why? Why not? 2. Write a one page analysis on how the group came to this decision. Was one person a group leader? What roles were played? And how did the group reach its final decision. Turn this in, as usual, in the body of a webct email before the deadline. 1
