Question Description

This assignment provides an estimate of the frequency with which errors are made in reasoning about individuals, societies, and social processes.

  • Locate five Letters to the Editor in any news publication that makes assertions about individuals, societies, and social processes; that is, about the social world.
  • Identify examples of any of the four errors in reasoning in those letters. (Search through more newspaper issues, if necessary, until you find at least three examples of errors in reasoning about the social world.)
  • Speculate on the likelihood that the social world’s complexity, self-interestedness, human subjectivity, or resistance to change resulted in each of the errors.
  • Rewrite the text of one of the letters to eliminate the errors of reasoning within it, but without changing the basic point of the letter.

*Include what letter you used to rewrite.*
