what is a casual argument and how do i spot them?

Postby cavalier2015 » Tue Jun 10, 2014 2:11 pm

doing over my NA Cambridge packet and reading over manhattan forum explanations and a LOT of questions deal with this idea of casual arguements and when it is a casual argument, we should be on the look out for 3 things: Does the reverse make some sense too? Could it be that something else impacts both A and B? Could it be that A and B have no impact on one another?

i apologize if this is a dumb question, but how do i spot a casual argument? what keywords or ideas should i be looking for in the premise-conclusion relationship to indicate it's a casual argument?

additionally, what is this idea of "shielding" and "bridging" answer choice for NA questions?

My sides :lol:

Also be sure to know the subtle differences between business causal and smart causal.
