Reasoning from Parts to Whole
Lecture no. 13 from the course: Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning
Taught by Professor David Zarefsky | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
The next six lectures focus on inferences, the most complex parts of an argument, and how they determine the argument scheme to be used. Six common inference patterns will be reviewed. This lecture considers inferences from example, which are used to relate specific cases to general claims and to apply general statements to specific cases. The lecture will also identify common errors.
