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).
