Fallacies of illicit transference

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A fallacy of illicit transference is an informal fallacy occurring when an argument assumes there is no difference between a term in the distributive (referring to every member of a class) and collective (referring to the class itself as a whole) sense.[1]

There are two variations of this fallacy:[1]

  • Fallacy of composition – assumes what is true of the parts is true of the whole. This fallacy is also known as "arguing from the specific to the general."
Since Judy is so diligent in the workplace, this entire company must have an amazing work ethic.
Because this company is so corrupt, so must every employee within it be corrupt.

While fallacious, arguments that make these assumptions may be persuasive because of the representativeness heuristic.
