Evaluating Evidence

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning

 Evaluating Evidence

Taught by Professor David Zarefsky | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

With this lecture we turn to argument appraisal and focus on individual arguments. We begin with the evidence supporting an argument. It must be agreed to by the arguers for a meaningful discussion to proceed. Evidence can be categorized in many ways, but we will focus on examples, statistics, tangible objects, testimony, and social consensus.
