During Thursday's class, the second presenter said that a logical argument weighs the pro's and con's. She mentioned that a persuasive is a one-dimensional argument. I agree with my classmate on those statements. An argument turns into a fight when an individual's belief/opinion is disrespected or disregarded. If two people do not agree on each other's opinions, then to avoid conflict i believe every individual's belief should be respected as if it were your own. Every belief/opinion is unique.
During the presentation on Thursday, the presenters agreed that persuasion tries to change someones opinion or view on another person. Also, another person states that logic argument was a method that avoids most conflicts as it has fact and includes both sides of view. Persuasion argument is a more aggressive argument as a person might be more bias on their side compared to logical argument. For logical, the arguments make more sense and can easily be proven and understandable. As a result, logical arguments provides a clearer point of view which prevents it from turning into a full blown fight. The best way to avoid uncomfortable exchange of opinion is to both share each others side while accepting both side of their belief. When they get into an argument both parties should be respectful to each others opinion, resulting in a peaceful conclusion.
During the presentations, both the presenters mentioned that persuasion is when you try to change someone's opinion whereas logical argument states both sides of the argument. I agree with these definitions. I agree with the presenters that both of these turn into arguments when people do not have the same opinions. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable argument would be to allow everyone to express their own beliefs. Even if they do not have the same opinions as you, you do not have to start arguing with them. Both opinions can have a logical reason.
The are a few differences between persuasion and logical argument. When you use persuasion you are trying to get someone to believe whatever you want them to believe. It could be anything like trying to convince someone that the sky is the color orange instead of blue. With logical you state true facts to get your point across. Both arguments can cause fights because some people won't change their mind no matter how convincing you can be. I believe the best way to get out of an uncomfortable exchange would be to tell someone that we agree to disagree and lets leave it at that.
Like one of the presenters said a logical argument is when you are weighing in both the pros and the cons of an argument. As opposed to persuasion which can be seen as one sided opinion. Both logical arguments and persuasion can turn into a fight when there isn’t a mutal agreement. However, a logical argument can avoid the argument turning into a fight, only when either party is agreeing to understand the logic behind the whole argument. Persuasion can easily turn into a fight when the person getting persuade strongly disagrees with the person trying to persuade them. In order to avoid any uncomfortable exchange of opinions it is always best to agree to disagree.
In a persuasion argument it is about persuading someone into believing in an opinion. As to in a logical argument logic is used by reasoning. The two types of arguments are different, but in a persuasion argument it is more likely to turn into a fight. In a persuasion argument it is based on opinion, and not everyone has the same opinion towards an argument, and that can turn into a fight. Occurring to the presenters on Thursday in a logical argument the pro's and con's are viewed before making an argument; logic is used in a logical argument. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinion is by respecting each other's opinion not everyone thinks the same.
One of the presenters on Thursday said that the difference between persuasion and a logical argument is that persuasion is when someone wants to change another person's opinion, while a logical arguement shows more facts as well as both sides of the arguement. I sort of disagree with this as I believe that a persuasive arguement also has a lot more emotion involved in it. A person may try to get you to feel bad about something in order to change your opinion. A logical arguement may do pros and cons, showing that one is better than the other rather than playing with your emotions. Furthermore, both can easily end up in a fight. A persuasive arguement may turn into an fight when the participants get caught up with their own emotions and don't have a winning statement or run out of supoorting facts. A logical arguement may end up in a fight when both sides of the arguement are of equal strength and has met a stand still. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable exhange of opinion is to either stop arguing and leave it be or use strong suppporting facts and logic to prove your side better.
persuasion is a way to convinced other to believe or to do something out of feeling and logic is something that is true following the rules of principle of the world. when both persuasion and logical argument begin to fight it can be a endless battle of one not understanding one of another. the best example of this is religion and science. In a religion people are persuaded to spent their time worshiping and believing in a god who is the creator of all things where in science follows whats its true in the world and dismisses the idea of god only for the fact it has not been a scientific proven and creates conflict on both sides. so the best way to solve a problem like this is to understand one emotions and their beliefs and accept what is true in the world.
The first presenter stated that persuasion is used when trying to change someones opinion by the things you like and logical is when someone uses facts for both sides of the topic. I can agree with this because when you try to persuade someone over a topic, its because you have different opinions on that topic. Everyone wants to be agreed with because if not it usually tends to become an arguement. The second speaker stated that liking different things will cause a fight and that everyone wants someone to agree with them. While I mostly agree, not everyone wants to be agreed with, because I for one would not. Everyone agreeing with eachother would lead us to a one way thought with no different view points. I like having arguements just to see peoples different points of view to see if I can have my point of view changed. The best way to get out of a disagreement is by talking about it again when the arguement has cooled down.
Persuasion is convincing someone of something whereas a logical argument is provided with support. I believe it doesn't really turn into a fight if your open minded, everyone has their own beliefs/opinions. To get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinions it is important to always be respectful, and either agree or disagree.
The main difference between a persuasive and logical argument is in how they both attack the subject topic. Persuasion is based heavily on opinion; thus, the writing might have more biased supporting evidence that may be used to help an audience to side with the writer. Whereas logical arguments do not use opinions as a mean of proving a point but using both sides of an issue and their respective evidence to create a platform, where using only facts, leads a writer to attempt to refute the opposing side and support his or her arguments.
Trying to get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinion can be difficult as both parties can feel very strongly towards their opinion. The simplest way to diffuse the situation is to simply walk away in a peaceful manner. If not possible having strong refutes backed with evidence usually can tone down the arguments.
Persuasion could be when you try to force someone to do something they dont want to, you want that person to believe you. You could avoid by fighting and making it into an argument by having a open minded.
