People do many things to try to win an argument or make you see their point of view. Their argument may seem sound and convincing but on close examination it may contain one or more logical fallacies. Our textbook defines a fallacy as “an argument that contains a mistake in reasoning” (Bassham, Irwin, Nardone & Wallace, 2000, Ch 5, p 1). There are many fallacies, our textbook divides them into two basic groups: Fallacies of Relevance and fallacies of insufficient evidence. “Fallacies of relevance are fallacies that occur because the premises are logically irrelevant to the conclusion. Fallacies of insufficient evidence are fallacies that occur because the premises, though logically relevant to the conclusion, fail to provide sufficient evidence to support the conclusion” (Bassham, Irwin, Nardone & Wallace, 2000, Ch 5, p 1). I will discuss in detail three

Construction began on the Parthenon as we know it today in 447 B.C. The original temple was destroyed by the Persians in the sackings of 480 and 479 B.C. and the Athenians decided to leave the ruins as a reminder of the evil of the invaders. However by 450 B.C. peace had been struck and it became apparent that Athens needed a grand monument to represent its great new status. This is the backdrop against which the Parthenon frieze was built. The frieze is exceptional in Greek art because nowhere else are humans depicted alongside the gods. The exact story behind the frieze is unknown as no antiquities still exist on the subject from that period. For centuries archaeologists have tried to decipher its meaning and there are many theories as to what inspired it but still there is division among experts about what it means. In this essay I will attempt to evaluate these different viewpoints but to do so one must first understand the origins of the frieze.
A documentary film is a broad category of filmmaking practice that tries to document reality. It is a film genre that attempts to portray realism in the sense that it presents ‘actual’ people, places, activities and events. The fact that it documents ‘actual’ means that documentary films deal with fact and not fiction.
