JCU PRESENTS: FALLACIES IN THE WORKPLACE

Week 6: Slippery Slope (August 29-September 2)


Discussion Questions:

(1) In the video's example, Billie argues that if she allows Bob to increase the number of observations her supervisor are performing, everyone is going to come to her and ask to add more work to her team's plates. How can Billie reframe her argument to avoid the Slippery Slope fallacy?

(2) Do you agree that arguing something is a "slippery slope" is a fallacy? Why or why not?


(3
) Are there any examples of the "Slippery Slope" fallacy you've encountered in your career or your personal life?
