"What is a principle? How are principles important to your life?"
A principle is a kind of rule, belief, or idea that guides you. You can also say a good, ethical person has a lot of principles. In general, a principle is some kind of basic truth that helps you with your life. [ "Be fair" is a principle that guides (or should guide) most people and businesses. A politician who tries to do the right thing rather than win votes is acting on principle. A person
who has principles is a good, decent person. On the other hand, if you say someone has no principles, that means they're dishonest, corrupt, or evil. ]

Suppose you opposed President Kennedy’s ideas and wanted to find fault with his speech. What steps would you take to evaluate his arguments?
Weegy: After watching President Kennedy?s inaugural address and supposing that I opposed President Kennedy?s ideas, the steps that I would take to evaluate his arguments can be found in this week?s chapter on p. [ [ 219 and are as follows: ? Step 1: After fully listening to President Kennedy?s argument, I would identify any hidden premises that might have been included in the argument. If any part of the argument was complex, I would make sure to break down all parts of the argument that were expressed in order to better evaluate it. ? Step 2: I would examine each part of the argument for any errors affecting the truth; I would ask pointed questions about the argument, taking nothing for granted. I would identify any instances of either/or thinking, avoiding the issue, overgeneralizing, oversimplifying, double standard, shifting the burden of proof, or irrational appeal. ? Step 3: I would then examine his argument for any validity of errors; in other words, I would consider any reasoning of President Kennedy?s thinking that would link his conclusions to premises. Following, I would then determine whether President Kennedy?s conclusions were legitimate or illegitimate. ? Step 4: If one or more errors were found in President Kennedy?s argument, I would request the President to revise his argument to eliminate them. I would argue that the changes that needed to be made should depend and be based off of the errors that were already found in his argument. University of Phoenix. (2009). The Art of Thinking. Retrieved from University of Phoenix, HUM_111 website. ] ] (More)

What are assumptions? How do you think assumptions might interfere with critical thinking?
Weegy: Assumptions are like believing something that may or may not be true. In logic an assumption is a proposition that is taken for granted, as if it were true based upon presupposition without preponderance of the facts. [ This interferes with critical thinking in a big way, because if you're believing something that may or may not be true, it affects your thoughts. As a result you may or may not be analyzing the situation correctly. ] (More)
