- Question of the Day
Identify the flaw in the argument: “The ultimate frisbee community has been in the news a lot lately. Therefore Braden, who is an ultimate frisbee fris-bro, must have been in the news recently.”
This is a whole-to-part composition flaw. Descriptions you use for a community as a whole do not necessarily apply to the members of that community. Here, it’s possible that the frisbee community was in the news as a group, even if no individual members were in the news. So, we cannot use a piece of information about the community as a whole to support a conclusion about the community members.
