Logic and Logical Fallacies

Lecture no. 8 from the course: Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills

Logic and Logical Fallacies

Taught by Professor Steven Novella | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Delve further into logical fallacies, including the ad hominem argument (attacking the person instead of the argument) and the genetic fallacy (assuming the historical use of something is relevant to its current use). Dr. Novella provides vivid examples to hammer home each fallacy’s specific description and damaging implications.
