PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity provides an introduction to Ad Hominem and Red Herring fallacies used in argumentative writing and speaking.

The activity begins with a short excerpt from a conversation between Socrates and Phaedrus (from Plato's Phaedrus 272), during which Socrates quips "that the aspiring speaker needs no knowledge of the truth about what is right or good..."; rather that the speaker "pursue probability through thick and thin in every kind of speech."

The handout includes a description of Ad Hominem and Red Herring fallacies as well as a graphic organizer for diagnosing the type of rhetorical strategy used in a text and its intended purpose.
