I noted the other day the hierarchy of disagreements, as follows:
DH1: Ad Hominem
DH2: Responding to tone
DH6: Refuting the central point
It being in my nature to do so, I offer a theory: Anyone who understands this hierarchy typically engages in DH4-DH6 in their disagreements.
And here’s a corollary: Anyone who cannot even identify the central point of an argument typically engages at level DH1-DH3 in their disagreements.
