Advanced Labeling

The next three lessons are a little more advanced.

For, since, because

People get confused by these three words, but they are not that confusing.  They introduce both premises and conclusions.  We’ll see how they operate.

Sub-conclusion/major premise

Sometimes arguments get a little complicated and there is more than one conclusion.   But only one of them is the main conclusion and the rest are just sub-conclusions, otherwise known as major premises.  We’ll see some examples of these.

Context v. argument

It’s always helpful to figure out what the context or background information is versus what the author’s argument is.  Sometimes context is just background information.  Sometimes context is actually some other person’s argument.  If it is someone else’s argument, you also have to figure out what the premises and conclusions are in the other person’s argument.
