Understanding Logic - 1)
Much of the legal and political, or historical language must follow some form of Logic and be either Valid or Invalid! Because otherwise many parties just " Blow Smoke " or put out falsehoods which is where much of the News and Political- socialist jargon comes from!
There is no real logic in most of the advertising, Political propaganda, or much of the News - because they want it presented in a controlled form!
Which is pure Propaganda or Not True!
All logic argument forms fall into one of the following; there must be a proposition or statement which goes on to either prove the conclusion true or false!
Much of life is examined or explained as either:
- An argument form is either deductive or inductive:
Where the deduction form when it which claims it's premised provide conclusive evidence.
Which can be either:
Valid/correct or else invalid/incorrect.
A Valid argument can not the truth unless all of its premises support the conclusion!
Valid means the premises and conclusion are so related that it is absolutely impossible for all the premises to be true unless the conclusion is also true!
- While an inductive form claims only that premises provide some evidence for the truth of its conclusion.
Which are neither:
Valid/correct nor invalid/incorrect
Which may be evaluated as either better or worse
to a degree of likelihood or probability!
Truth and falsehood may be predicted from the propositions, but never arguments.
While a Sound argument is where the conclusion is always true!
If a deductive argument which fails to establish the truth of the conclusions is then unsound:
Which does not mean either valid nor; that not all of its premises are true!
There has to be either a correctness or incorrectness of any argument form!
The language used is either:
Informative = Cause and effect
Expressive = Personal feelings
Directive = Order or command
Once you get a firm understanding of Logic;
Then you will know it the argument is either true (valid) or false (invalid)!
** Part 2 will discuss Many of the informal Argument form fallacies used!
