Furtive Fallacy

Furtive fallacy occurs when the outcomes seem to have been caused by the malfeasance of the decision makers involved.

Example of Furtive Fallacy

  • This is most evident in when historians or scientists write articles at great lengths in description of the lives of certain personages, or events for which there is not sufficient evidence to prove the claims. The argument being made is not only without foundation, it is made with certainty (to further a point/agenda).
