Mastering Logical Fallacies

Lesson 22: Deception Through Confusion

In this section we will cover the Ambiguity Fallacy, Equivocation, and the Use-Mention Error in detail. These fallacies involve playing with language and not being clear.

By the end of this section you should be familiar with these fallacies and be able to recognize when they are committed, even if not by name. You will have practice identifying these fallacies in real world contexts. And you will create your own example of one of these fallacies.
