Logical fallacies are very common in our daily lives. We encounter them in real life even without us realizing it. If truth be told, knowing these logical fallacies, including the post hoc fallacy, is very important in order to make sound reasons at all times. Knowing these fallacies will enable you to respond properly as well. One of the most common fallacies is the post hoc fallacy which, when translated, means “after this, therefore because of this.” It attempts to assign the causality of a situation to a previously occurring event and concludes that because one factor happened before another, the initial factor must have caused the events to come.
