Consider how you encounter fallacies on a regular basis. As you are listening to others speak, for instance, pay attention to see if any of the fallacies are being employed.
For this assignment, find and explain the use of five different fallacies discussed in chapter 3. List them, explain where you saw or heard them, how they occurred and in what context, and what you believe was the purpose behind the use of each. You may find fallacies in your own thinking, in conversations with family and friends, in television and radio advertisements, political ads, political debates, and interviews with or announcements from politicians.
