CRITICAL THINKING - Fallacies: Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc [HD]


In this video, Paul Henne (Duke University) explains the post-hoc-ergo-propter-hoc fallacy.

He also discusses why it is sometimes hasty to conclude that your cat scratch caused your fever. Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/GqnC/
