Study Notes


  • The false dilemma fallacy occurs when someone presents only two options as if they are the only possibilities when in reality there may be other alternatives.
  • The appeal to ignorance fallacy involves arguing that a claim is true because it has not been proven false, or that a claim is false because it has not been proven true.
  • The slippery slope fallacy suggests that a particular action will inevitably lead to a series of negative consequences, without providing evidence to support this claim.
  • The complex question fallacy occurs when a question is asked that assumes a particular premise or set of circumstances, which may not be true, and then proceeds to ask a question based on that assumption.

Example of False Dilemma Fallacy

  • An example of the false dilemma fallacy would be when someone says, "Either you're with us, or you're against us," implying that there are only two options when in reality there may be other perspectives or alternatives.
