friendly political argument
Briefly describe a situation in which you have been in a social setting and either been involved in or observed an argument based on different opinions about a subject – perhaps a friendly political argument you were party to, or maybe your uncle announces a crackpot idea at Thanksgiving. Now, thinking about that situation, explain:
- What dispositions of critical thinking were used in the argument? Or alternatively, what dispositions of critical thinking should have been observed and why?
- What dialogical dispositions were used in the argument? Or alternatively, what dialogical dispositions should have been observed and why?
