Looking at arguments: You’ll see how to identify arguments made in all kinds of ways – and also start to think about what makes a good argument. It depends what you mean by: Language can be used to make an argument clear – or to confuse the issue. Today you’ll look at some of the different meanings of common words – and the misunderstand-ings they can cause. Deductive versus inductive: Some conclusions must be true, some may be true – and some are more probable than others. Here you’ll find out what we mean! Bad arguments: ‘You can’t believe what they say, because they live on the north side of town.’ Obviously a bad argument. But some are not so obvious… Truth, knowledge and belief: How can you be sure about what you know, and what if someone else is convinced that they are right and you are wrong? Using evidence: When you make an argument, you need to select evidence to support your case. But what is relevant,... [-]
