Argument from Repetition

Argument from repetition refers to someone repeating a statement often in the hopes that the listener will begin to accept it as truth, instead of providing evidence.

Example of Argument from Repetition

  • Hurtlocker deserves an Oscar. Other films have potential, but they do not deserve an Oscar like Hurtlocker does. The other movies may deserve an honorable mention but Hurtlocker deserves the Oscar. The argument basically claims that the Hurt Locker is a great movie because it is a great movie.
  • Stupid people are so annoying. They prove their stupidity by saying stupid things.

Note

Alternative Name: Argumentum ad Nauseam
