Rhetoric: Logical Fallacy of Circular Reasoning

Breaking out an individual type of fallacious reasoning provides focus to this resource. In any unit on persuasion or debate, it may be just as useful to examine poor approaches as well as effective ones. Here, we look at circular reasoning and the class works to provide better supporting evidence for opinions expressed in four simple examples given. It lacks a specific application to a piece of persuasive text, but would be easy to adapt to whatever informational text you're currently reading in class or could work preemptively as part of a writing unit so that your secondary writers know what not to do.
