Dr. Michael Labossiere joins me in a discussion concerning Logical Fallacies. For the unintiated Logical Fallacies are, roughly speaking, an error in reasoning.

My interest in this topic came from a passing comment made by a guest on another podcast I was listening to, he mentioned that logical fallacies are ever-present in commercials. This piqued my curiosity and I explored the topic further including Richard Gula's excellent book 'Nonsense: A Handbook for Logical Fallacies'. 

I then sought after a guest that could come onto my show and illustrate the logical fallacies that we most commonly come across; ad hominum, appeal to emotion, appeal to the crowd, the fallacy of confidence, etc.. My search led me to Dr. Michael Labossiere, professor of Philosophy at Florida A & M and also author of two book on logical fallacies; '42 Logical Fallacies' and '30 More Fallacies'.

    Thanks for that post Bryan. Hope that book deal goes through for you. I wrote a book, but I didn't try and puisblh it, I just did the lulu self-puisblhing thing. It worked out great for the whole humility thing as I didn't sell much. haha.I just read a chapter in Tim Keller's The Reason for God about Original Sin. The statements that stuck out were about our reason for living. If we are not 100% living for God's will and glory, we are sinning and never going to be fulfilled. Like you said, if you get a book deal, then you will want the book sales to be high, than a second book, and then pretty soon you will be wanting If our fulfillment is not in God, than we will stay unfulfilled. http://mrfgsgfg.com [url=http://lvyaun.com]lvyaun[/url] [link=http://stixjyz.com]stixjyz[/link]

    You're totally right about the book/fulfillment lie. The one thing I used to dream about all the time was gentitg a book published. Then I did that. Then I did it again. Now I dream about writing a book that gets a lot of attention. When that happens, I'll want to write a bestseller a book that will allow me to write books full-time, and not have to worry about all the freelance writing and magazine work and regular paychecks and all that stuff.The truth is that, while there is some fulfillment to writing a book and seeing it at Barnes and Noble, it's never enough. I'm never satisfied. So if I'm looking to ever arrive or feel successful as an author, I probably won't. If I think it'll somehow make me feel complete as a person, as a father, as the high school nerd hoping to show up the cool kids with my success then I'll be disappointed. As a fledgling writer, the fact that you already realize this is an excellent, excellent step.And be encouraged, Bryan: you're much farther along in the process than most would-be book writers ever get. http://ktrggeii.com [url=http://ksuxpbcz.com]ksuxpbcz[/url] [link=http://hgtszqwvcde.com]hgtszqwvcde[/link]
