Example of syllogism: Bill O'Riley argues that Muslims should not be allowed to build a mosque at ground zero because the terrorists who bombed the Twin Towers are Muslims. He generalizes terrorism to all Muslims. Syllogistically his argument looks like this: Premise 1) All Muslims are terrorists. Premise 2) Terrorists should not be allowed to build a mosque at ground zero Conclusion: Therefore, Muslims should not be allowed to build a mosque at ground zero. My assignment: Identify 3 arguments advanced by public figures and state the arguments. Next, take the arguments and structure them into one of the syllogistic forms. I figured politics were the best place to look for arguments that could be translated into syllogisms. Does anyone have any examples they would care to share? I can also use any examples from religion and social issues, but they need to have a public figure driving them.
