In the unfair summary, what strategies does the writer use to make the opposing view seem weak and flawed? In the fair summary, how is the opposing view made strong and clear?/2022

Use the following questions to analyze the differences between the two summaries of Lisa Turner’s article.
1. What makes the first summary unfair? Explain.
2. In the unfair summary, what strategies does the writer use to make the opposing view seem weak and
flawed? In the fair summary, how is the opposing view made strong and clear?
3. In the unfair summary, how does the writer attack Turner’s motives and credentials? This attack is
sometimes called an ad hominem argument (“against the person”—see the Appendix for a definition
of this reasoning fallacy) because it attacks the arguer rather than the argument. How does the writer
treat Turner differently in the fair summary?
4. Do you agree with our view that arguments are more persuasive if the writer summarizes opposing
views fairly rather than unfairly? Why or why not?
