Journal 7
Due 2.26

As you read your Classic Text #4, look carefully for an argument that can be concisely represented in standard form analysis. That is a way of presenting an argument by listing the claims (or paraphrases of the claims) found in the argument and labeling the parts as premises or conclusion. The place to begin is to look for a conclusion, then build the premises up from it. This effort takes concentration and intense examination. Write down claims that strike you as possible conclusions as you read. It is very hard to hold this all in your head, which is one reason why standard form analysis is so powerful - it puts your reading to work.

In your Journal for this week, describe your efforts to make use of the standard form analysis and express what you find in your article.
