At one point or another, just about anyone could be guilty of using them in a discussion or debate. The more heated the conversation, the more likely they are to occur.
While I’m awaiting a book’s arrival in the mail, I ran across the “Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments” this morning on Buzzfeed and tracked down the full book. It’s gloriously illustrated and quite an excellent read. I love logical fallacies, though there are more than just the ones in this book. There’s a full list here: Fallacy Files as well, though it lacks the pretty pictures.
Do everyone a favor and join me in reading about logical fallacies. Debaters will thank you later! 😉
