Good article. Just something to add under the section Tautologies Versus Valid Arguments, is that including a premise within the conclusion of an argument which thus creates a self justifying circularity of reason, is called Begging The Question. It would be great if you included this so people can begin to stop misusing the phrase all the time. Thank you

Thank you, Jeff, for your comment.
Indeed, Begging the Question is an invalid type of argument and it would be appropriate to include mention of it in this article. The text will be revised to add that point.
Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
