This answer was rated:

Match the following terms with the appropriate definition.


Definitions and Examples:

A
The Straw Man

Definition – Producing an argument about a weaker representation of the truth and attacking it.

Example: The government does not take care of the poor because it does not have a tax specifically to support the poor.

Example: We know that evolution is false because we did not evolve from monkeys.

B
Either-Or Choices
Definition - Also known as ultimatums. Either-Or arguments suggest that there is only one answer to a particular problem or that there is only one possible cause for a particular action.

Example: Either we take the war to them, or they will almost certainly bring it to us

C
Dogmatism
Definition - Assuming that truth is evident to those who know better and that arguments against the position are void.

Example: Of course, it is important that we legalize marijuana. It would be silly to argue otherwise.


D
Non-Sequitur
Definition - Translates as “does not follow.” Non-Sequitur arguments occur when writers skip a step in the logical process, unwittingly comparing or combining unrelated ideas.

Example: Do you walk to school or do you carry your lunch?

Example: We know why it rained today: because I washed my car.

Example: I don't care what you say. We don't need any more bookshelves. As long as the carpet is clean, we are fine.
