I based a question on what I considered to be an implicit claim. What's more my question was based on a widespread assumption.
In a discussion with Sklivvz in chat, he stated that a claim cannot be implicit.
This seems silly to me as implicit claims are something that are dealt with in many philosophy and critical thinking classes in universities around the world,in various books on logic and reasoning and in many other sources.
Put simply, an implicit claim would be a claim an argument relies on but is never explicitly stated.
(Of course now that I have shown claim being made that claims can be implicit I guess I could ask the question on the site itself).
I found this page pretty quickly which gives a good example.
Should an implicit claim then be enough grounds to ask a question on this site, or do all claims need to be explicitly made or stated?
