Ethics – Week 1 pt.2 – Jan 13, 2011
Arguments
-Propositions = true or false
-Arguments are sound or unsound, and (if deductive) valid or invalid
-Sound = valid and has two premises
-A good argument meets both subjective and objective criteria
- - Must make an argument tha t is understandable to the audience (i.e. intellect language
with academic people)
- - Argument must also be objectively sound…if it doesnt persuade audience there is no
point
-Object with one of your premises to figure out what is wrong (reductio absurdio)
What is the best policy?
-You need to take away what is least reasonable to you (What else can be done to make the
argument better?)
-Zenos Paradox (no such thing as space, time)
