What is Ad Hominem?
I don’t know what “ad hominem” means. So I did some online research. Again, Wikipedia become my saviour. They added the the phrase on their database. But, I just fascinated by the meaning because ad hominem is simply means logical fallacy.
An ad hominem (Latin: "to the man"), short for argumentum ad hominem, is an attempt to link the truth of a claim to a negative characteristic or belief of the person advocating it. The ad hominem is normally described as a logical fallacy, but it is not always fallacious; in some instances, questions of personal conduct, character, motives, etc., are legitimate and relevant to the issue.
