Question and answer
Q: How are fallacies used in written, oral, and visual arguments?
A: Early work in informal logic favoured fallacies as a way of assessing informal arguments. [ Traditional accounts define a fallacy as a pattern of poor reasoning which appears to be (and in this sense mimics) a pattern of good reasoning (see Hansen 2002). Such accounts are a problematic basis for a general account of fallacies insofar as what appears to be good reasoning to one person may not
appear so to another. In assessing ordinary arguments, these issues can be avoided by understanding fallacies more simply, as common patterns of faulty reasoning which can usefully be identified in the evaluation of informal arguments. In its treatment of fallacies, informal logic revives a tradition which can be traced to Aristotle. In the history of logic and philosophy, its significance is reflected in the writings of figures like Locke, Whately, and Mill. Today, this tradition manifests itself in textbooks and websites which attempt to teach good informal reasoning by teaching students how to detect the standard fallacies. ........... ]

User: how do you avoid fallacies

Weegy: If you are going to copy anything from a source make sure you cite it properly and don't take credit for something you didn't think of yourself.
