Sample Arguments In Standard Outline Form 1. I am conscious and intelligent. 2. Other people act quite a bit like I act in various situations. 3. Other people act as I would expect them to act if they were conscious and intelligent. a. They act like I act when I am in pain, or feeling good, in the same sorts of situations. b. They speak and write things I would expect of a conscious, intelligent being. c. They seem to respond to situations, and make decisions, very much like I do. Therefore (from a -c), necessarily, 3. 4. Other people being conscious and intelligent would provide a simple, plausible explanation of why they act as I would expect if they were conscious and intelligent. 5. I have no alternative explanation that is nearly as plausible. 6. It seems very unlikely that a non -conscious or unintelligent being would act like that, unless they were programmed to do so by someone conscious and intelligent. 7. I have no evidence that other people are programmed to act as they do. 8. Other people are biologically like me. 9. It is likely that something biologically like me would be psychologically like me. Therefore (from 1 -9), very probably, 10. Other people are conscious and intelligent. 1. There are thousands of deer in Alb erta. 2. There are, probably, millions of mice in Alberta. 3. There are thousands of elk and moose in Alberta. 4. There are thousands of jack rabbits in Alberta. 5. There are over 2 million people in Alberta. a. According to the government of Alberta website there are over 2,900,000 people in Alberta. Therefore (from a), very probably, 5. 6. Deer, mice, elk, moose, jack rabbits, and people, are all mammals. Therefore (from 1 -6), necessarily, 7. There are more than a thousand individual mammals in Alberta. 1. Many people claim to be from China. 2. Many people claim that their parents were from China. 3. World atlases talk about a place called ‘China.’ 4. World maps show a place called ‘China.’ 5. Radio and TV news broadcasts, and newspapers often refer to a place called ‘China.’ 6. It is unlikely that all these sources are either mistaken or lying. Therefore (from 1 -6), almost certainly, 7. There is such a place as China. How your arguments will be evaluated : a. Is it laid out in the proper standard form ? b. How strong are the inferences ? I.e., how obviously deductively valid, or inductively strong, are they? c. How strong are the (unsupported) premises ? I.e., to what degree are t he premises (which are not themselves supported by other premises) obviously or pro bably true ? (An argument is only as strong as its “weakest link .” [The weakest premise or inference.]) d. How clearly, concisely, and elegantly , is the argument expressed ? e. How strong or significant is the conclusion ? I.e., to what extent is the conclusion controversial or not obviously true? f. To what extent does the argument seem to beg the question ?
