In case you haven't already figured it out, I like to ask questions about how to measure soundness.
Suppose I haven two arguments, X and Y, each consisting of p premises. Suppose that argument X commits f > 0 fallacies, whereas argument Y commits g fallacies, where 0 < g < f. Could one say that argument X is worse than argument Y in terms of its soundness?
Suppose there are two entities, X and Y, each having made a arguments that average p premises each and have the same distribution of the number of premises per argument. Suppose that entity X commits f > 0 fallacies in total, whereas entity Y commits g fallacies in total, where 0 < g < f fallacies. Could one say that entity X is worse at making sound arguments than entity Y?
In Question a, what if the two arguments have a different ratio of fallacies to premises?
In Question b, what if the ratio of fallacies to arguments differs between the two entities?
In Question b, what if the distribution of the ratio of fallacies to premises differs between the two entities?
