    I'm a huge fan of this guy.
    One of the most profoundest thinkers of all time.

    Read it (as econ students it should at least "interest" you)!
    Let me know what you think... no arguing though lets keep it nice.

    Opinions only.

    Appeal to authority as logical fallacy
    A (fallacious) appeal to authority argument has the basic form:
    1. A makes claim B;
    2. there is something positive about A,
    3. therefore claim B is true.
    The first statement is called a 'factual claim' and is the pivot point of much debate. The last statement is referred to as an 'inferential claim' and represents the reasoning process. There are two types of inferential claim, explicit and implicit.
    Arguments that (fallaciously) rely on the objectionable aspects of the source for the truth (usually falsity) of the conclusion are described as ad hominem arguments.

    Now I don't want to start an argument. But I will posit that the use of rationalism or (and) empiricism are equally claims to authority. The importance of the effects of special relativity on observer objectivity is after all one of Einsteins principle contributions to science.
