Assignment 1: Discussion Question
By the due date assigned, of Module 2, post in the Discussion Area at least one current-day advertisement where the Argument by Authority fallacy is present. Describe the syllogism that makes this a fallacy. Take care to be certain that you post an Argument by Authority fallacy only.
By the end of the module, post a critique of at least two other students’ posts. Have they found solid examples of argument by authority, are there other fallacies present, or are the advertisements well written, with a true authority in place as needed?
Discussion question responses should be at least one-half double-spaced page in length. Your responses to your peers’ writing should be a substantive paragraph in length and should include specifics from the text if you are attempting to make a point.
