Critical Analysis Project

Moving the debate forward

Argument quality constrains the space of possible argument, but that typically leaves enough room that considerations of argument quality alone will not determine a particular outcome to a debate.

Our primary goal with this site is to highlight argument quality. We are not trying to advocate particular positions in the debates we are considering. This also means that our critical analyses are restricted to the arguments that are actually advanced within the article or opinion piece we are analysing.

However, further debate on controversial issues is always possible. So comments provide a space for new arguments and counter-arguments on the topic of pieces analysed. This section is open to anyone who wishes to advance such an argument. To add an argument, please use the relevant comment box.
