Question and answer
Q: What are fallacies? How are fallacies used in written, oral, and visual arguments? What might you do to avoid fallacies in your thinking?
A: Fallacies are defined as a mistaken belief and based on an illogical argument. Fallacies are used in many things we see or hear. Fallacies are glorified fabrications of the truth. [ They are used in writing to get the reader focused on the topic without using logic. When looking at how fallacies are used in written and oral arguments, you must first understand what a fallacy is. Basically,
fallacies are flaws that weaken and soften the validity of your argument. If you can find fallacies in your others writing, you can learn to find them better in your own writing, as well. We see examples of fallacies every day in our lives through advertisements, the news, and the radio. Fallacies to stay away from in your argument are making generalizations, missing the point of the argument and its conclusion, latching on to false causes, grabbing onto an argument that has you going down a slippery slope that causes a chain reaction of information, using weak analogies to make your point, appealing to an authority figure, using ad hominem, making an appeal through pity or even ignorance, using the straw man argument, bringing in a red herring, and equivocating. ]
