Appeal to novelty – logical fallacies

Description

Appeal to Novelty, the opposite of the Appeal to Antiquity, is an argument that the novelty or newness of an idea is itself evidence of its truth.

Since every rejected idea in the history of man was once a “novel idea”, the fallaciousness of this argument is apparent. Moreover, every good idea was once novel. But it takes time to determine whether the novel idea is useful or not.
