Ever been stuck in an argument, knowing that the other person’s logic is faulty, but not knowing exactly why or how?
In the upcoming weeks and/or months, I’m planning to do some short posts and illustrations on some types of logical fallacies. Many – if not all of these – are fallacies which we frequently encounter in journalism and in “debates” (cordial or not) with family or friends.
We begin with the argument from silence, or argumentum ad silentio.
