Flashcards are printed on 3.4" x 5.5" cardstock.

Category Description for Dr. Ransom's Adorable Fallacies:

Adorable fallacies? I suspect that is new terminology for logic-minded readers. But it is a term I appreciate. Personally, I find that trying to exert reason into a discussion filled with fallacy leads to great frustration. Combining a working knowledge of the fallacy with a light-hearted perspective and animal theme, authors Doug and N.D. Wilson provide a vital resource for anyone wanting to apply logic into their everyday discussions.

Divided into four kingdoms, the authors teach through 50 informal fallacies. Kingdom I: Fallacies of Distractions includes Ad Hominem, Genetic Fallacy, Special Pleading, Straw Man, Red Herring and others; Kingdom II: Fallacies of Ambiguity includes Equivocation (Definitional Ambiguity), Division (Whole to Part Fallacy), Loaded (or Complex) Question plus many others; Kingdom III: Fallacies of Form includes Petitio Princippi (Circular Reasoning), Denying the Antecedent, Fallacy of Compromise (Argument to Moderation), Naturalistic fallacy (Is-Ought fallacy), Slippery Slope and others; Kingdom IV: Millennial Fallacies include Milquetoastery (appeal to consequences), Ad Imperium (there ought to be a law'), Hyperlogicism and other contemporary rationales.

Chapters conclude with discussion questions and exercises. In the back of the book is a brief answer key along with a one semester or one year reading schedule. The publisher Canon Press offers free quizzes/tests (and answers). We have these available for download on our website. Also available are 50 double sided flashcards aligned to the fallacies in the text. Black and white illustration and fallacy name are one side with the fallacy example on the flip side. Cardstock Flashcards measure 3.4" x 5.5".

Worth mentioning, there is edginess to this resource not found in similar resources. Presumably, this is to provide more real- life application. Many examples would be considered contrary to Christian beliefs including drugs, abortion, pot smoking, and one instance where the Bible is referenced as a "dusty holy book" 320 pgs. SC. ~ Deanne

These cards came highly recommended by someone I highly respect! I'm so excited that I was able to find them and thankful that Rainbow Resource Center had them in stock.

We have been reading the Adorable Fallacies, but it's difficult to keep all of them in your mind. These flashcards will be a fun way to really imprint them in our minds. Plus, they're adorable!

I teach a Logic class at a local co-op and have two children participating in it. I love the hands-on & interactive approach to learning. Look for more orders pouring in from my 2017-18 students!

Flashcards very useful for keeping track
These are very helpful in using Dr. Ransom's Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies. I was using the book and ordered the cards to help my daughter keep track of the various fallacies. Now she lays out the ones we have covered to date during our discussions of the book so she can reinforce what she has learned and quickly identify which fallacy applies. She can also use them to study before quizzes or tests.
I would highly recommend these cards to anyone using this books
