Chalk Talk: Avoiding Fallacies - False Authority
One fallacy that is frequently invoked is that of false authority. On the surface, adding in an air of authority to a persuasive argument seems like a good idea. However, it is important to do your research. For example, someone making an argument may claim that because their source is a teacher, the information must be correct. This fails to take into consideration, however, what that teacher is an expert in. A math teacher probably does not have the authority to comment or provide information on topics that relate to economics or government, unless they have separate credentials that qualify them. Similarly, an English teacher probably should not be cited in a mathematical argument. When constructing your arguments, be sure that the sources used are the absolute best for the position being crafted.
