Quantification Fallacies

Error in logic where the quantifiers of the premises are in contradiction to the conclusion’s quantifiers. An example of such a fallcy is when the argument has a universal premise and a particular conclusion.

The most important quantifiers are as such:

  • Universal Quantifier: All x
  • Existential Quantifier: Some x

Example of Quantification Fallacies

All dogs hate some cats.
