The purpose of this App is to instruct you on the fundamental rules surrounding logical fallacies.

This App focuses on the most common types of logical fallacies as well as how to identify them within formal debate and common discourse.

This App features sections on every major formalized logical fallacy such as Red Herring, Straw Man, Ignoratio Elenchi, and many more.

Other features include an overview of basic terminology in logic, real-life examples of fallacious reasoning, as well as a study in the differences between deduction, induction, validity, soundness and other necessary components for the study of fallacious reasoning.

Finally, you will be given the opportunity to be tested on your knowledge of the material through flash cards and multiple choice tests designed to train you to be a flawless debater.

Once completed, this App will enable you to quickly identify, assess, and respond to common misconceptions and faulty reasoning within an argument as well as equip you with the ability to avoid these pitfalls when constructing your own arguments.
