Simple but thought provoking. I'm amazed at some of the negative reviews here, perhaps from people who use precisely the sorts of examples given to justify their own arguments or beliefs? Well I like to be challenged. I like to be made to think about whether I might be using spurious reasoning to justify my own view of life, the universe and everything. So good stuff, Luke!
Great app to help you grow as a person. Not understanding the complaints about political bias. I have found the app to poke fun at both side of the political spectrum but it seems people are only seeing the negative towards their beliefs.. Suppressed Evidence..?
Does not explain anything. This is literally only word for word examples. There is no depth to this. Was kind of confused on where to start then i realized this is it, only examples and no real reasoning of the argument explained. Its rather boring.
Nice concept. Consult a philosopher or a smart person about your examples though. Many are not truly fallacies, and many of your example sentences are poor representations of what they are supposed to support. For example, an appeal to probability may be fallacious if used to suggest absolute certainty where none exists. However, it is often rational to believe something for which there is a sufficiently high probability. Your example for Appeal to Ridicule is also misguided. The comparison between belief in gods and belief in the tooth fairy is intended to demonstrate that the claims used to support each are similar (often identical). That it makes such belief sound rediculous is the intent, but it's not a fallacy. It would only be fallacious if the argument went "Belief in X is wrong BECAUSE it sounds delicious."
Really love it and my debate team will love it too
The best logic I've ever seen!
UPDATED: • fr translations -> thanks to JonathanMAS on GitHub.
ADDED: • Brazilian Portuguese -> it's listed under the "pt" locale which I believe is incorrect, but Android doesn't seem to have the correct "pt-rBR" locale. Sorry about that.
Thanks to Afmachado on Github for these translations.
It performs logical analysis and the analysis of the period of a sentence in Italian.
