Lecture 1-5

Purposes of argument 0:10

arguments are made out of language 0:50

"Materials" of argument - language 0:40

Rules of the language

if the word in the first blank has an effect in the world then it is a speech act

see Mars example 7:20

if - then, if might seem like argument, but by itself it is NOT 10:05

you could prove anything with circular reasoning and you could also prove the opposite 6:58

the goal is to increase understanding 2:00

how to avoid fallacies 5:54

vagueness 6:00

ambiguity 6:01

irrelevance 6:02

begging the question 6:10

definition of an argument 6:26

a series of sentences, statement, and propositions

some are premises one is the conclusion

premises give reasons for the conclusion

we use language to bring about a change in the world 00:20


getting premsion

legal rights


"I don't like fish"

just a personal preference, no explanation required

not as good as "good"

some philosophers say the word "good" is just a way of expressing emotions or maybe telling us what to do 0:29

thats not the whole story, good as Preference vs good as Evaluation 0:49

explanation = joining generalization (justification), prediction BUT vice versa does not always work is this part correct? I got a little lost here.

monty python 0:40

tricky cases 9:50

contextually evaluative 9:56

combining positive and negative evaluation words 11:57

too 12:57

saying something is good/bad, right/wrong,moral/immoral

requires explaining reasons for backup

Decisions are based on reasons (example court, evangelist) 2:40

if you don't know the premise you can't know the conclusion since the premise is the conclusion

Take the passage and mark Reason, Conclusion, Assuring, Guarding, Discounting, Evaluative Term and positive and negative evaluative terms 00:45
