  • What is False Dilemma/False Dichotomy Fallacy

  • The False Dilemma (also known as  False Dichotomy) Fallacy occurs  

  • when an argument presents two options as the only  possibilities, when in fact more options exist

  • This fallacy limits the possibilities  to two, often extreme, options,  

  • with the intent to force a choice between  them, ignoring other viable alternatives

  • It's a tactic used in argumentation  to corner the opponent into choosing  

  • an undesirable option or to oversimplify  complex issues into black-and-white choices

  • Everyday Example: In a discussion about career choices, Person  

  • A says, "You either go to college and succeedor you don't go and end up failing in life." 

  • Here, Person A is presenting a false dilemma by  suggesting that success is only achievable through  

  • college education and that not attending college  inevitably leads to failure. This ignores other  

  • paths to success, like vocational trainingentrepreneurship, or self-taught skills.
