“Enthymemes in Everyday Life.”

Identify an example of an enthymeme you encountered this week in the media or in a conversation.

The Dude's enthymeme: "Does this place look like I'm . . . married? The toilet seat's up, man!" (Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, 1988). Universal Studios

Create a syllogism based on the enthymeme.

Major: Only single men leave toilet seats up.

Minor: Jeff is a single man.

Conclusion: Therefore, Jeff leaves the toilet seat up.

Determine whether the syllogism is valid or invalid and explain why.

Invalid, it is someone's opinion.

If invalid, identify the reasoning error that is present in the syllogism.

Leaving the toilet seat up does not identify one as being single or married.
