I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need an explanation to help me study.
Week 4 Discussion
Please respond to the following:
There are several types of fallacies: equivocation, false authority, ad hominem, appeal to ignorance, and bandwagon.
- Please provide two different examples of advertising that show any of these topics.
- Which of these fallacies is used in each advertisement? Why do you think the advertisers used that fallacy in the ad? Did the advertisers use the fallacy effectively?
- If you were an advertiser, what would you have done differently to better use the fallacy?
