Definition

The fallacy of division is the attempt to argue that constituents of a whole have the same properties as the whole.

Examples

  • "Bill lives in a large building, so his apartment must be large."

Explanation

The premise and the conclusion may both be true, but the premise does not prove the conclusion without further evidence.
