Published on 9 Oct 2011
So far we know that all arguments must be placed in "standard form" before the can be assessed
We can also know that there are two different arguments that interest philosophers
Finally we should also know the definitions of validity and soundness
All deductive arguments have what philosophers call a "logical form"
For example: " if tony takes drugs, then he is an irresponsible person"
This argument is in the logical form of Modus Ponens
There are many valid forms an argument can take.
