- 2007-04-27 The Fallacy Fallacy warns against the idea that an argument is invalid just because it follows the form of a logical fallacy. The article does not, however, give any examples of valid arguments presented in a fallacious form. That said, it would seem true that most logical fallacies have valid arguments at their core, but that they have been somehow misapplied to a new context; it is worth cataloging these errors, as they are both frequent and hard to spot (possibly because they play on flaws in our lower-level reasoning systems).
