The Fallacy Finder

 

Here’s a fantastic site that lists, provides definitions for, and gives examples of various logical fallacies. It’s pretty exhaustive. I click around and skim every so often, it’s actually quite fun for me.

What’s a fallacy, you may ask? According to Robert C. Solomon a fallacy is “[a]n apparently persuasive argument that is really an error in reasoning; an unsound or invalid argument.” (Introducing Philosophy: A Text with Integrated Readings, pg. 38)
