The Plague by Albert CamusGreenhouse, Pod EightBy Adrian OrtizPrompt A: Use logical argument(s) to analyze two characters’ responses to the plague in Oran. Explain how two different fallacies apply to the logic of either character. Based on the information in the text, which response is most sound?Prompt B: Explain how one character’s response in The Plague reflected or impacted your views on how we should respond to infectious disease crisis. Use evidence from the text and multiple actual examples from your work on CDC and MN town investigations.Dr. Bernard RieuxDr. Bernard Rieux, a character that doesn’t insist upon giving others medical attention throughout the book during the plague outbreak. He doesn’t look at himself as a hero of a kind or any, he’s just a “decent man doing his job”. He believes the key problem in the world is the inability to comprehend the suffering of others. He thinks the solution to this issue is to pile up the bodies where everyone could see them.Sometimes Rieux looks into himself and questions why he chose to be a doctor, he’s unsure at times when people are in need of his skills but he doesn’t help.He claims he wants to “defend” the citizens of oran, but when asked “against whomst” he has no notion of what he wants to defend against. It’s clear that the character can be ignorant and indecisive throughout the book. But when asked he claims he does know.But towards the end of the book it is absolutely crazy to see that the character was actually the narrator of the story, the whole entire time.”a dead man has no substance unless one has actually seen him dead.” (Camus 4).”that is what I’m doing,” he tells Rambert, “yet why I do not know.” (Camus 6).”a man can’t cure and know at the same time,” (Camus 9).Appeal to ignorance.Bifurcation.Begging the question.Non-Sequitar.M.CottardWe meet M. Cottard as he tries to commit suicide. The book wants us to see Cottard as Tarrou does: as a man who is alone and in pain. The reason for why Cottard feels this way is because he has a social reputation for being a criminal but finds himself innocent for a crime he doesn’t find guilt in, he had an everlasting nervousness for the thought of being caught for what he’s done. He makes friends with people who would soon become his character witnesses.Cottard soon falls under as victim to the title of criminal, and puts on the mask of criminality. In fear of his status he resorts to embracing it, since he was made to look like one; smuggling during the plague and becoming a crazy madman.But the books wants us to not see him as an average senseless criminal, but a man of loneliness and painful endeavor.”This particular tobacconist — a woman, by the way,” Grand explained, “is a holy terror. I told Cottard so, but he replied that I was prejudiced and … “He’s siding with the others, the swine!” “With what others?” “The whole damned lot of them.” Grand had personally witnessed an odd scene” (Camus 54).Sweeping Generalization.Hasty Generalization.
