Fallacies Ch. 1 Generalia
Fallacies of the ins claim the on this occasion the precedence.
Why? — Because on that side the demand for
fallacies will be sure to be most urgent — and the production
of arguments actually exhibited by ingenuity operating in this
line, the most various.
first? — Because the
demand is greater:
To both together the precedence is given with relation
to Jack-o'-both-sides Either-side fallacies, because since it is under
the head of each that the demand which it may happen
to each to have for the assistance of those instruments of persuasion

Because under the
head of each this the demand

Under the head of each of the two first of these classes of fallacies
I shall begin with bringing to view the cause and origin
of the demand which the combatants in that side of every political question have

By the nature of that demand will then be rendered
visible a quality of characteristic quality — I mean irrelevancy common to the several individual

But besides this, under the head of each separate
fallacy, besides a few examples, brought adduced to view for the purpose
of rendering the conception of it the clearer and more familiar,
I shall subjoin add an exposure or refutation of
it, having for its object striving to bring to view the mischiefs and or absurdities
