Types of Logical Fallacy






Logical fallacies can be grouped into 3 categories:
  1. Deductive Logic Fallacies: These are fallacies that arise from errors in the formal logic. For example an error in a mathematical proof.
  2. Inductive Logic Fallacies: This group of fallacies is caused by errors in the formal inductive logic and data processing.
  3. Cognitive and Emotional Fallacies: These are fallacies based on the features and limitations of how our brains process logical statements and evidence.
