Entry4_Phi Thi Hong

Item 1:

Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ut2l87mUCBQ

Analysis:

Premise:          The woman uses Da Huong

                        The woman is happy

                       _________________________________                         

Conclusion:      All women using Da Huong are happy      

This argument is inductive invalid but weak

Item 2:

Tưởng tượng phong phú

Vài tuần sau khi một anh chàng được nhận vào làm việc, anh ta bị gọi lên phòng nhân sự.

– Thế này là thế nào? – viên quản lý hỏi – Tại sao khi nộp hồ sơ vào công ty, anh lại khai là anh có 5 năm kinh nghiệm? Bây giờ chúng tôi mới phát hiện ra anh chưa từng làm công việc này bao giờ.

Anh chàng trả lời:

– Ô hay, thưa ngài, thế chẳng phải là trong thông báo tuyển dụng, các ông đã nói là cần người có óc tưởng tượng phong phú là gì?

Analysis:

  • Ø Argument 1

Premise: Anh chàng chưa từng làm công việc này

               Anh ta khai là có 5 năm kinh nghiệm

               ______________________________________

Conclusion: Anh ta có óc tưởng tượng phong phú

This argument is a valid one. It is sound argument.

  • Ø  Argument 2:

Premise: Anh ta có óc tưởng tượng phong phú

               Công ty cần người có óc tưởng tượng phong phú

              __________________________________________

Conclusion: Anh ta nên được nhận vào công ty

This argument is also very good valid.

Item 3:

Nghe lời mẹ

Một tay trẻ tuổi quay sang hôn cô gái không quen biết ngồi kế bên trên ghế đá trong công viên.

Chẳng thấy cô gái có phản ứng gì, anh ta bèn hôn cái nữa nhưng cô gái vẫn ngồi im. Ngạc nhiên quá, anh ta hỏi:

– Tại sao em lại im lặng, không phản ứng gì cả?

– Là bởi vì mẹ tôi luôn dặn: “Chớ có bao giờ trò chuyện với những người đàn ông không quen biết”.

– !!!

Analysis:

Premise: Mẹ cô gái dặn : “Chớ có bao giờ trò chuyện với những người đàn ông không quen biết”

               Cô gái nghe lời mẹ

               Chàng trai không quen cô gái

              _________________________________________________________

Conclusion: Cô gái không nói chuyện với chàng trai

This deductive argument is good one because when all its premises are true, its conclusion must be true.

  1. I like your item 2 and 3. Item 2 is clearly analyzed. But I find it ambiguous about your argument in item 3. Because of the mother’s warning, the girl didn’t talk to the man. But she let him kiss her and after that she answered his question. So is there anything illogical here?
    I think you should reconsider this.

  2. Hi Hong,
    I really love your entry, especially the item 2.
    I would like to give you some comment on item 1.
    Firstly, I think you should consider about the argument structure . In my opinion, I think it should be: ( If A, then B, Not A , therefore not B)
    If the women use Da Huong, they will have a happy life
    If the women do not use Da Huong
    =======================================
    They will not have a happy life
    Secondly, I think it is the structure fallacy ( denying the antecedent)
    Hopefully, you will check it again😀

  3. Hi Hong!
    I agree with the comment of Trinh and Huong. Your entry is quite good with three interesting items. However, I have some comments for item 1. I think you should analyze more details in item 1. The premise is:
    The women uses Da Huong
    The women is happy
    In my opinion, we can not conclude that all women using Da Huong are happy. Besides, I think it has fallacy.
    Anyway, I like your entry

    Hi Hong, I have the same with Thuy that item 1 has problem here. The two rest items, I think, are ok. Tks for your interesting entry

    Hi Hong,
    i would like to share my opinions about your entry.
    In item 1, you are wrong at the conclusion ” all women using Da Huong are happy”. in advertisement, I find women focused on in Asia.
    In item 2, it is good that you are careful analyzed
    In item 3, you are also successful in your argument.
    In general, please check your item 1 and your entry is more perfect.
    Thanks,

  6. I agree with your analysis about item 2. But I wanna add another fallacy in this item. That is the argument is invalid because of equivocation ( the word “Người có óc tưởng tượng phong phú”). This word is misunderstood by the man. Người có óc tưởng tượng phong phú is the one is creative but not tells lie or invent things which are not true.

  7. Hi Hong, I’d like to have some comments on your entry:
    – in item 1. I think your conclusion is not true exactly. if the woman do not use Da Huong=> they are not happy.
    – in item 3: I don’t understand why the girl let the boy kiss her and then she explain the reason
    above are my comments😀
    good luck 2U

  8. Yeah! I agree with all the comments above. 3 items u chose are very interesting but there is some problem with your analysis.
    – item 1: I think the premise you pointed out in this situation is not true, it should be:
    If the women use DH, they are happy.
    The woman is happy
    conclusion: She uses DH
    – item 2: I also don’t agree with the premise here, it should be more specific.
    – item 3: What an funny story, however I have the same idea with Trinh, she lets other kiss her but she dares to talk to them. I think the premise “cô gái nghe lời mẹ” is not neccesary!
    Goodluck
