This page needs to give brief descriptions of the logical fallacies (maybe not all of them, but at least the important ones) and then link to the "full article" of that fallacy. A person who comes to this page wants to survey a variety of logical fallacies briefly and then decide which need to be investigated further, i.e. go to the "full article".

I noticed that "proof by example" and "hasty generalization" are listed in the bottom section as being two different fallacies.  Aren't these really two different names for the same fallacy?  (For example, "Stalin was a communist, therefore all atheists are communists too.")

Proof by Example vs. Hasty Generalization?

I noticed that "proof by example" and "hasty generalization" are listed in the bottom section as being two different fallacies. Aren't these really two different names for the same fallacy? (For example, "Stalin was a communist, therefore all atheists are communists too.") Geezerbill 16:39, 21 June 2011 (CDT)
