Informal Logic

Conduct research from scholarly sources on each side of your issue. The UAGC library features research Tutorials (Links to an external site.), which offer videos on getting started, understanding the research process, vetting scholarly and popular resources, and providing instruction on how to read a scholarly article.

Write a paper that includes the following:

Introduction (approximately 100 words)

  • Explain your topic and state the specific question that you are addressing.

Presentation of an Argument (approximately 200 words)

  • Describe the scholarly source on one side of the issue.
  • Present what you see as the main argument from that source (present the argument in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion).

Evaluation of the quality of the reasoning in this source (approximately 200 words)
You may address questions such as the following:

  • How adequately does the article support the premises of the argument?
  • How strongly do the premises of the argument support the truth of the conclusion?
  • What (if any) missing premises would be needed to complete the argument (make it valid/strong)? Are these missing premises justified or merely assumptions?

Presentation of an Opposing Argument (approximately 200 words)

  • Describe the scholarly source on the other side of the issue.
  • Present what you see as the main argument from that source in standard form, with the premises listed above the conclusion.
