    • Conclusion: A conclusion is the supported claim that is being made. In an argument one expects that a claim will be supported with reasons or premises. Moreover, these premises will be true and will, in fact, lead to the conclusion. Hence arguments can be evaluated as to how well they do this: Are the premises true? Is the reasoning good?

    • Conclusion Definition: In the technical sense, which refers to arguments and their structure, the conclusion is a statement which is supposedly given support by a set of other statements (the premises). Comment: In real life, arguments frequently have several levels of sub- arguments-- that is, the overall conclusion will be supported by its set of premises, but any one of those premises may itself be supported by another set of statements, and so forth. Relative to the statement it supports, a statement is a premise; relative to those which it is supported by, it is a conclusion. Note that its being a conclusion says nothing about where a statement will occur in a given presentation-tion. The conclusion could come first, last, or in the middle-- or, for that matter, it could be repeated several times throughout the presentation. And by no means is the last sentence in the presentation necessarily its conclusion. When a speaker says, "And in conclusion, I want to thank you for being such a wonderful audience. I'm outa here." -- that's not part of his argument at all.
