Logical Fallacies
Logical Fallacies / Reification


Also called the Fallacy of Misplaced Concreteness, or hypostatization, the reification fallacy occurs when an argument relies on an abstract concept as if it were a concrete fact; when a hypothetical scenario or situation is referred to, and treated as if it were a real thing.

Example of Reification

"The ocean is calling me saying Come play with me, and splash in the salty waves."
