PHIL341 Critical Reasoning
Week 1 Discussion
A subjective claim that people might call “a fact”
An objective claim that people might call “an opinion”
What is the difference between a claim that is “objective” and a claim that is “subjective?”
Explain how mislabeling these claims could negatively impact the quality of a person’s thinking. You might try thinking of claims you could hear in a hospital or another work-related environment. If a person has confused objective with subjective or fact with opinion, what is the solution?
In addition to your initial post, post two substantive peer responses that demonstrate how you connect to their explanations. Provide thoughts, insight, and analysis of their answers. Your response should extend the dialogue.
