THIS IS THE 1 PAGE ESSAY
Suppose that you are attending a conference for physical therapists. You listen to a speech by Dr. John Russell, an orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Russell is speaking about a new, experimental procedure to repair torn ligaments in the knee. After listening to the 30 min. conference talk, one of the attendees sitting next to you, Harold, tells you, “Dr. Russell claims that the procedure is effective at reducing pain 3 months post-surgery. Dr. Russell would, of course, hold a favorable view of this new procedure because he only recently finished his orthopedic surgery fellowship, and plus he went to medical school on the West Coast. Therefore, this procedure could not be as effective as Dr. Russell claims it is.”
This is a two-part assignment:
- Identify the type of logical fallacy in the argument that Harold just made. Justify your selection.
- Respond to Harold with a different set of statements containing a separate fallacy. State the type of fallacy that you committed in responding. Then, justify why the fallacy you made is of the type that you purport it to be.
THE ESSAY MUST CONTAIN 2-3 REFERENCES CITED INTO THE PAPER WITH A REFERENCE PAGE WITH LINKS TO THE REFERENCES.
This week’s Discussion forum will discuss visual fallacies. Check out this link and the description of an advertisement. Read through this advertisement and share your thoughts on how one sub-consciously or consciously makes sense of advertisements, in general and about this one in particular.
Thinking about the types of fallacies that we have been discussing so far, how would you categorize this fallacy, and why?
THE RESPONSE HS TO BE 200 Words Min. and have a reference cited into it with the link so tat I may check over the work
