Dialogical history of a logical fallacy spontaneously produced during a predictive medicine consultation. Role of the causal connective Puisque in a discussion

Abstract : This article presents the dialogical history of the production and the contesting of logical fallacies in a natural dialogue stemming from a Genetic Counseling for Predictive Testing consultation. These logical fallacies are errors in reasoning that are well-known in psychology and rhetoric: « affirming the consequent » and « negating the antecedent ». The authors construct a formal model of this dialogue which explains why the fallacy appears and why corrective attempts ultimately fail. They show that the causal connective puisque is an essential operator of the studied dialogue.
