Phl 276 Summer 2012 Argument Evaluation Assignment


Using your exercises, handouts and notes from class, reconstruct and evaluate the argument(s) for the conclusion of this Free Press editorial on the potential closing of the DIA.

Type your answer. Be sure to include:

1. A clarified reconstruction of the argument
2. An evaluation of the sufficiency of the inference (i.e. is it deductively valid? dialectically valid/invalid?)
3. An evaluation of the acceptability of each premise.
4. Written support that explains each of your evaluations.

Follow all the guidelines given on the assignments page of the syllabus. We will discuss the item at the start of the next class and the assignment will be collected for evaluation.
