Watch out: There's an epidemic of kind-hearted people adopting the adorable yet treacherous creatures known as informal fallacies. So, we've compiled this FIELD GUIDE FOR CLEAR THINKERS to make sure you, dear reader, can identify and exterminate fifty of the most fluffy and most venomous adorable fallacies. Inside you'll find inventive illustrations, clear descriptions, helpful exercises, semester- & year-long schedules, and all the clever analysis a person might need to steer clear of all the little fallacies.
The fifty informal fallacies are divided into four groups: fallacies of distraction, fallacies of ambiguity, fallacies of form, and millennial fallacies. Each is described as an adorable but deadly creature one might encounter in the wild, complete with illustration and a fantastical description as a memory aid.
Perfect for beginning logic students. Matchless as a supplement to any established high-school or college logic curriculum. Ideal for pastors or parents, or anyone else in our age of nonsense who wants to apply logic to real life (or the Internet).
