1. Analyze Stanton 's use of induction and deduction to support her claim and develop the argument. 4-5 paragraphs.
This is a deductive argument. A deductive argument is an argument that is intended by the arguer to be deductively valid. As the deductive arguer here I am attempting to provide the truth of the conclusion that is provided by my arguments premises and they should be true statements.
Yes, the characters are written realistically; the story wouldn’t be so popular if readers couldn’t identify with them. They aren’t just noble, stouthearted heroes in a story full of sunshine, they get hungry, wet, tired, scared, and they complain, just like any human being. They make mistakes and have to answer for them, they look up to others, such as Thorin or Gandalf, only to have them leave or pass away so that they must figure things out on their own. I’ve felt all those things: hungry, wet, tired, scared, confused, and sad. And I also felt the emotions along with them as I read; it felt as if I were one of their company.
The article, Overview of "The Hobbit" written by Don Akers, examines John Tolkien's influential work and informs the reader about the impact that Tolkien aimed for while writing fantasy novels. The author begins with explaining Tolkien's philosophy on the importance of fantasy and mythology within a culture; stating that his main purpose is to link the cultures of the past and present and thus making myths more credible. Myths from the past were borrowed by Tolkien and used to develop his worlds, as mentioned in the article. Acknowledgement bestowed upon Tolkien for laying the strong foundation for future fantasy writers. He then goes on to explain how Tolkien's influence branches beyond writers and even into fantasy role-playing games. To
This argument precludes the fact that he may be home sick, or using paid time off. Therefore, this is not a sound argument, though the premises are true, as it does not account for other factors that may keep my husband home.
This passage does contain an argument and the conclusion is in the last sentence - stating that the technique of using swabs is probably unreliable one-third of the time. The argument is based on induction.
Because, comfort level is very important for their kids. If the provider is not good to take care of their own children is shameful for themselves. At least mother should know to understand to who their going to be in the future and what it is they value. Teaching a good child begins in the home, and it’s the stay at home mothers who create the environment in that home.
The argument, though convincing contains some major assumptions made without any factual evidence which could be proven to be false or untrue if put to test. The following are some of the major loop holes present in the argument which weakens it.
1. “Nearly 70% of married men and 60% of married women have had affairs, and, among my clients, 8 out of 10 who have committed adultery regret having done so. It’s reasonable to conclude, then, that about 80% of all adulterers regret having cheated.” –Holly Hein, Sexual Detours. This passage as an argument because there are 2 or more claims present. I practice using the numbering method to complete this diagram: (1) 70% of married men and 60% of married women have had affairs. (2) 8 out of 10 who have committed adultery regret having done so. (3) A bout 80% of adulterers regret cheating. (1) + (2) = (3). This here shows that (1) and (2) are the foundation for (3) the conclusion. Now, I must decide If this is an argument or
Working parents have to deal with some problems when it comes to working and parenting. They have to both do their jobs in the workforce and care for their children at home in order to maintain their families. In other words, they cannot fully commit themselves to just working or parenting. Also, working parents have to find family time to spend with their children in order to strengthen family relationships.
Stay-at-home moms are constantly attacked by the media and their lives are compared to that of the toddlers they are raising. Entire books have been published like “Get to Work” by Linda Hirshman scolding stay-at-home moms for giving up valuable education so that they may raise a child they wanted. Nelson makes it clear that “Children don’t raise themselves.” People who chide these mothers seem to either forget or not realize how difficult it is to take care of a baby who can’t do anything by themselves. Feeding, clothing, and bathing are ther bare minimum that any parent has to do for their child let alone teaching them how to talk. Some women still work from home. Balancing a work life and a parent life is incredibly difficult under one roof.
A deductively valid argument is an argument in which the premises succeed in guaranteeing the conclusion. In deductive arguments, the premises are intended to provide such strong support for the conclusion that, if the premises were true, then it would be impossible for the conclusion to be false. The truth of the conclusion is also contained within the truth of the premises, also supporting its cogency. In my argument the truth of its premises guarantees the truth of its conclusion; therefore this argument is deductively valid. This argument is also considered to be cogent because it has both satisfactory premises (true or plausible premises) and a structure that provides rational support for its conclusion.
