Part 1: Due Thursday by 11:59 PM (100 Points)

1.  On the Internet, research evidence about what kind of leader Adolf Hitler was before and up to March 13,1933, when Time put him on its cover–in an artist’s rendering–sitting in a garden with a dog, dressed in a casual Schutzstaffel (SS) uniform.

2. In 1,000 words (four pages), argue A, B or C.

A.  The 1933 Time cover of Hitler with a dog in a garden was irresponsible and dangerously misleading news coverage of Hitler on the part of Time, encouraging faulty deductive reasoning (a faulty syllogism (連結到外部網站。)) on the part of people who viewed the cover but did not read the article.  The explanation of Time about why it features infamous people on its covers (連結到外部網站。) is a weak argument justifying its unethical choice to publish more than one positive image of Hitler on its covers (1933 and 1938 (連結到外部網站。)) at a time when Hitler’s demagoguery (連結到外部網站。) was public knowledge. Time actively helped to promote a false ethos (連結到外部網站。) of Hitler.   Thus, the 1933 cover, in particular, shows that Time is in direct opposition to these four lessons from Timothy Snyder’s 2017 book On Tyranny: Take responsibility for the face of the world, Stand out, Believe in truth, and Be as courageous as you can.

Quoting:  The explanation of Time about why it features infamous people on its covers (連結到外部網站。), syllogism definition, and Snyder’s On Tyranny.


B.  The explanation of Time about why it features infamous people on its covers (連結到外部網站。) is logical, and is not opposed to these four lessons from Timothy Snyder’s 2017 book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century: Take responsibility for the face of the world, Stand out, Believe in truth, and Be as courageous as you can.

Quoting:  Snyder’s On Tyranny and the explanation of Time about why it features infamous people on its covers (連結到外部網站。)

C.  Arguing about whether or not the Time cover of Hitler was ethical reporting, and using deductive reasoning and Snyder’s lessons in On Tyranny to prove or disprove this point, makes your teacher guilty of the false dilemma fallacy,  (連結到外部網站。)stopping you from thinking more creatively (and abductively?) about why Time depicted Hitler on the 1933 cover with his dog in a garden.  If so, explain how your teacher is stopping you from thinking more creatively; provide concrete examples.  In what other ways should you be thinking about the 1933 cover of Hitler?  Are there questions you should be asking about the 1933 cover that assignment directions A or B preclude you from asking?

Quoting:  Snyder’s On Tyranny, source for false dilemma fallacy, and assignment directions.
