Basic Critical Thinking- 6M


Arguments and Reasoning

After reviewing the readings in your textbook, respond to the following:

Identify the differences between deductive and inductive arguments.

Additionally, explain how misleading reasoning is used to influence others.

Then, select a topic of interest to you and explain how you would come up with a reliable sample for obtaining peoples’ opinions. Reference the section “Empirical Generalization,” on pages 475-478 of your textbook. 

The key criteria for inductive arguments in establishing viable sample populations are: 

Is the sample known?

is the sample sufficient?

Is the sample representative?

Re-type and then respond to these questions. Your response should consist of 1-2 pages.

Be sure to submit your final draft to the Dropbox by Sunday, 11:59 PM (Mountain).
