5/3/2009 1 Review: Divergent Conclusions The argument as a whole will be weaker than the individual parts. Example: Charles speaks French very well and Chinese very well. Thus, he can speak at least one European language very well, and also that he can speak at least one Asian language very well. Valid/Completely Reasonable. Chapter 15: Evaluation of Convergent Arguments Spring 2009 San Francisco State University Instructor: Mike Olsen The Convergent Premises Principle An argument consisting of convergent sides is better than any of the separate sides, except when one of those sides is completely unreasonable, with the proviso that the entire argument will not be completely reasonable unless one of the sides is completely reasonable. Multiple Witnesses If we have one witness arguing for a particular conclusion, but a second arguing for the same conclusion… We should get stronger support for our conclusion.

What students are saying

    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.
