What is the form of an argument?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 12 Jan 2010

The form of an argument is the logical nature of an argument behind the scenes.

Whereas we use real words in an argument such as: if it is cloudy then it might rain, it is cloudy, therefore it might rain, in an argument form you get things like:

All A's are B,
X is not B, therefore X is not A.

Now whether an argument is valid or not can then be studied more clearly by looking at the argument form as there is not the distraction of all the words and a particular case. Is the above argument form valid? Over to you!
