    evil demon argument is the idea that there might be a spiritual being, almost like god, deceiving us in matters that are not put into doubt by the dreaming argument – the “simpler and more universal things”.

This argument is similar to the dreaming argument from the perspective

    ii) What is an argument? Elaborate with examples. In everyday life, people use argument to connote a squabble between people. But in critical thinking and logic, an argument is a list of statements, which consist of two or more premises or assumptions and a conclusion of the argument.

Although, in my opinion, argument can be defined as a disagreement between two people with opposing views and or beliefs on a given issue. An argument that comes easily to mind is one that my mother and I had post-prom. We were disagreeing on whether I should be able to attend an after-party at one of my friends’ homes in New York. I believed that

Another premise is that Sue will have a boy or girl. “So”

    an argument there is a failure in reasoning which makes the argument unsound. While I believe we must have all had an argument containing fallacies, I think it is important that we remember to think logically in order to have a valid and smart argument.

Many politicians are guilty of having this kind of fallacy in their argument. Another

    There is an argument out there that Panpsychism is the best way to view the world, but there is also the objection that this view may not be correct as it is just a last-ditch effort to try and explain consciousness. This objection can be overcome with logic in the end.

As explained by Keith Frankish in his article “Why panpsychism fails to solve the
