Critical Thinking: Formal Fallacies

Posted by Hallee on Dec 19, 2009 in Critical Thinking, homeschooling

An argument is called “valid” when it’s form is correct and does not lend to a mistake in reasoning due to a faulty structure. An argument is deemed “cogent” when its form is valid and its premises are sound. In logic, “valid” means that if the premises are true, the conclusion is also true. A fallacy can occur when the form is adulterated to reach a false conclusion.

Hopefully, that provides some insight into how we, as parents, meet the needs of our children in those two very often overlooked areas. Keeping things in balance, we wanted to offer some insight into the most overlooked area, that being how we choose to meet their intellectual needs, as well.
