What is an objection in philosophy?
In argumentation, an objection is a reason arguing against a premise, argument, or conclusion. This form of objection – invented by the presocratic philosopher Parmenides – is commonly referred to as a retroactive refutation.
How do you write an objection to an argument?
To object to an argument, you must give reasons why it is flawed:
- The premises don’t support the conclusion.
- One or more of the premises is false.
- The argument articulates a principle that makes sense in this case but would have undesirable consequences in other cases.
How do you write a paragraph for objection?
In your paragraph:
- Identify the opposing argument.
- Respond to it by discussing the reasons the argument is incomplete, weak, unsound, or illogical.
- Provide examples or evidence to show why the opposing argument is unsound, or provide explanations of how the opposing argument is incomplete or illogical.
How do I find a counterclaim?
A counterclaim is the opposite of the argument, or the opposing argument. A reason tells why the claim is made and is supported by the evidence. Evidence is the facts or research to support your claim. I hope you win your next argument!
How do you write a strong counterclaim?
- Step 1: Write a counterclaim. Write a sentence that contradicts the claim.
- Step 2: Explain the counterclaim. The more “real” you make the opposing position, the more “right” you will seem when you disprove it.
- Step 3: Rebut the counterclaim.
