*If you are one of my students, your objective is to be able to define, compare, and recognize the 22 fallacies. Take good notes since you can use them on exams. Exam questions may ask you to explain which fallacy a particular argument is or to compare/contrast any two fallacies. You should also use this vocabulary in your papers and class discussions.
