Text pp. 198—203 49. Irrelevant Thesis:  It is ridiculous to assume that all people would like to  be Egyptologists,  and,  in any case,  whether they  would  or   not  is  irrelevant to the g estion of whether Pro ιι -

fessor Ames should or should n t devote all of her time to it. The answer to this ο   question will depend on whether she has a talent for the subject and whether, in  spending so much of her time on it, she will be neglecting other responsibilities.  (This could be analyzed als , perhaps, as an example of both slippery slope and ο   division: slippery slope because it anticipates an avalanche occurring should we  allow Professor Ames to pursue this interest—although it doesn't spell this out cum- pletely as in the standard example of this fallacy—and division because, as in all  remarks such as "what if everybody did that," we can reply that what may be true of  the whole need not be true of the single individual. Ce rt ainly, if every-one chose that  as a career goal, it would he unfortunate, but hardly so if, as is only likely, only some  did.) 56. False Cause.:  Being called Jim has nothing to do with whether or not a person is  "nice." Some Ji r ns are  d some are not. (But, αη  of course, even if all Jims were nice,  that would not by itself establish a causal link between the name and the disposition.) 65. Irrelevant Thesis:  It may be  tr ue that American workers are  much   better off than  their European counterpa rt s, but that fact is irrelevant to whether their protest is  justified. They may be trying to protect a standard of living that, tradition-ally  d αη   historically, has been higher than that of their European counterpa rt s one   that  this country can well afford to maintain. 67. Be
