Have you ever found yourself in the middle of an argument listening to your opposition, and you have a strong feeling that something is very wrong with the point that they're making, but you can't pinpoint exactly what it is?
Chances are, if you knew the logical fallacy they were guilty of committing, you'd be much better equipped to have a productive philosophical conversation.
On today's episode, we take a look at several common logical fallacies. We analyze what they mean, how they are used in the context of an argument and then we provide tons of examples that illustrate how to spot the fallacies. The goal here is to make you more confident at being able to practically use the raw information that we talk about on the show every week, and have an episode you can return back to and refresh your memory if you ever forget them.
